Open Course Race provisions:

The Sea Girt 5K will take place on October 17th, with a new format this year due to current conditions.

All registration will be online and you must be Pre-Registered by Oct. 1 in order to participate.

You will be mailed your race bib # with attached timing device prior to the race.

You will be given a start time between 8:30 – 10:30 AM on Sat., October 17th. Show up no more than 10 minutes prior to that time and begin the race whenever you are ready to go. There will not be a gun start – just show up and run or walk. Your start and finish time will be recorded by crossing the start and finish timing mats. After finishing the race, please leave the area.

The course will be open from 8:30 until approximately 11:30 AM. It will NOT be a closed course, meaning the streets will be accessible by vehicle traffic.  However, the start/finish area will be closed to traffic and major intersection crossing points will be controlled by police and other volunteers. Barricades, cones and markers will be used to direct participants and traffic. Participants will be directed to stay to the side of the road and be aware of vehicles and other obstacles. EMTs will be on site.

Social distancing rules must be adhered to – 6 ft minimum recommended, before, during and after the event. You may wear a mask before and after the event if you feel distancing cannot be maintained. Masks may be worn by walkers during the event but are not recommended for runners. You may run or walk in a group or cluster with your immediate family members if desired.

There will be one water stop on the race course. Bottled water will be available at the start/finish area. Portable restrooms will be limited. Hand sanitizing stations will be available.

You may pick up your shirt before or after the race at the start/finish area (must have your race bib). Must maintain distancing when picking up shirts.

There will be no kids races or activities, no band, food or other frills that would lead to congregation on site.

No awards will be given on site. A free race entry for next year’s event will be granted to the top 3 male and female in each age group.

Results will be available online and you may sign up for text notification.

You must agree to complete a self-health check within 24 hours of the race start.  You must abide by all government orders including those requiring quarantine if returning from any designated state or country. If you are not able to participate in the race due to any symptoms, conditions or travel quarantine restrictions you will be granted a full refund upon request.

Virtual Race provisions: Run or walk 5 kilometers at a time and place of your choosing. No official time recording or awards. Your race t-shirt may be picked up at a designated time/place. Do not show up to run the course on October 17th.

Due to the ongoing economic hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for food assitance is greater than ever. Please help fight hunger by making a contribution today!

Once again the 2020 Sea Girt 5K will again be timed and scored by LinMark Sports of Mantua NJ.  Texted Results will be sent to all finishers within seconds after finishing - full results and videos will be posted at:
