Is a 4 mile run too far for you???? Then we have the perfect race for you…come run our 3.92 mile fun run on Saturday, October 22nd in Manasquan, NJ. This is a no frills, relaxed run with a great all-you-can-eat post-race bash at Leggett’s. For our walkers, this year we have added a 2 mile health walk.  The Stomp the Monster Spooktacular is going to be a huge party…with a run to warm us up. This flat course starts off on the beautiful boardwalk for a mile of ocean views, makes its way through the streets of charming Manasquan, and ends just short 4 miles…right at the parking lot of one of New Jersey’s beach bar classics, Leggett’s Sand Bar. Who needs a timing chip? The faster you run, the faster you get to the after-party happening inside Leggett’s, with a FREE buffet lunch. Wear your craziest costume – PRIZES will be given.

Course Description:

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.
