 Shore A.C. is hosting its 6th Annual Alumni Cross Country Race at Holmdel Park on Saturday, November 11, 2023. This race is in honor of the late Bill Bruno, who was always a champion for our sport as a coach, Athletic Director and Assistant Director of the NJSIAA.
This year's event will include the traditional 5K race for men and women at 8:30 AM, with team and individual competition (see below). For younger athletes or those just looking for a shorter race, we will also offer a 3K at 9:00 AM. Holmdel Park offers a beautiful yet challenging cross country course that we encourage you to endure and enjoy! 
Results will be posted on Don't miss the unique opportunity to nostalgically run the famous trails of Holmdel Park! There will be two team competition categories: a high school/college teams and club and open fun related teams: club, family, friends, business, or other category of your choice.
