19th Annual New Jersey Marathon Weekend Hits Shore April 24-26

19th Annual New Jersey Marathon Weekend Hits Shore April 24-26

SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

One of the highlights of spring at the Jersey Shore is the annual Novo Nordisk New Jersey Marathon weekend, a three-day celebration of fitness, physical activity and healthy competition. And while the main attractions are the full marathon, half-marathon and half-marathon relay on Sunday, April 26, runners, joggers, walkers, staff and volunteers are preparing for an array of activites that race director Joe Gigas, a longtime Shore resident, hopes will be the biggest ever.

"We have a great group of participants this year including the Mayors of Long Branch and Oceanport, two returning New Jersey Marathon champions, one runner completing their 100th marathon, cancer survivors, families running together, and everyone in between," said Gigas. "Over the last few years we’ve seen a strong increase in the number of female participants. They outnumber the men in the half marathon distance and among all participants registered for our races, women marginally outnumber men."
