The 16th Annual New Jersey Marathon Weekend (May 4-6) is in the books and by all accounts our best ever. Our Staff is very grateful for the record field of 12,000 participants (3,100 for the NJM, 8,200+ for the Half Marathon and 300 Half Marathon Relay Teams) from 46 states, 19 foreign countries and every one of the 21 counties throughout New Jersey.
This is an urban marathon with a 4 mile stretch of oceanfront with an oceanfront Finish. It would be tough to find a better venue for a marathon!
Our goal of having the best Fluid Stations and an interesting and entertaining flat course, is also supplemented by the excited support of the residents of the neighborhoods in the communities which host our course.
The Saturday morning Family & Kids' Events are staged at the oceanfront Great Lawn and the Promenade in Long Branch, the site of the Marathon Finish. It has become tons of fun for kids of all ages with a carnival atmosphere!
- Technical material Tee shirts
- Pacing Team Leaders
- Great Spinning Finishers' medals
- Massage therapists at the Rejuvenation Station at the Finish
- "B" Chip timing (affixed to the back of the race bib
And much more!
Please join us for the 17th annual New Jersey Marathon Weekend (May 3-5). We will again provide NJ Transit train service from Penn Station NYC, central parking withing walking distance from the Start and with free shuttle buses from the Finish area back to ventral parking in Monmouth Park.
