I’ve done several races along the Jersey Shore, and have always wanted to add this race to my list. I was disappointed after completing this race today. With it being held in mid-July, the race organizers really should’ve started the race an hour earlier...at 7:30, instead of 8:30. For us in the back of the pack, it made the heat unbearable by mile 4. Also, the lack of aid stations was alarming...especially with the heat...and with the heat, at least one aid station with Gatorade would’ve been great. The residents more than made up for it though...with hoses to run under and handing out their own water to runners. Signage after the finish was lacking too...trying to find water and food afterwards was harder than it should’ve been. This was their 43rd year of having the race...you’d think they’d have it mastered by now. Unfortunately, I am one-and-done with this race. But if you’re looking for a local race, in the summer at the Jersey Shore, then give it a shot.

From the second I registered til I departed lovely Rehoboth Beach, my race experience was one of my absolute favorites! Communication from the Organizers, the course, the town & businesses, the SWAG...everything...exceeded my expectations! And oh man, that after party! I’ll be back in 2018....and in years to come!

Fun 5K...it was unseasonably humid & warm this year, but still a very fun race. Wished the expo was a little more exciting...and had some shopping for runners instead of just bib & packet pick-up, but it did it’s job. We stayed at the Sands at the Steel Stacks and although they had a race discount code, no one at the hotel knew about the race and the hotel did not have late checkout....which stunk since the race began at 10am..checkout was at 11.. friends stayed at the Courtyard so we just showered there. Anyway, the beer stein you get is huge and it’s filled with delicious Yuengling Oktoberfest beer. The party afterwards is a lot of fun and I highly recommend hanging out and enjoying. I can’t wait to do this race again!
