This unique, SPOOKTACULAR ALMOST 4-Mile Course starts on the north end of the Manasquan boardwalk, known by locals as “Sea Watch” named for the historic lifeguard station at the corner of 1st and Ocean Avenues. After a full mile of ocean views along the boardwalk, runners will find themselves hugging the historic Manasquan Inlet with full views of the river. The course turns inland and makes its way toward the heart of this beautiful, picturesque town. Miles two and three will have the runners circling Mallard Park and running along the inlet waterways passing lovely Glimmer Glass Harbor. Turning away from the Glimmer Glass, runners will find themselves in the heart of this Norman Rockwell-like town setting, finishing at historic Leggett’s, a Manasquan staple since 1935.
We also have a 2-mile walk course this year (start and finish are the same as the run course). Same giveaways; same after-party!
