Includes 5K, Kids Races, Expo Village and Runners Party
RED BANK, NJ – The 21st annual 2014 George Sheehan Classic with its popular 5K (3.1 mile) distance as its main event, is set for 8:30 am Saturday, June 14. More than 2,500 runners are expected to participate in what is known as one of the Jersey Shore’s most renowned road races. Pre-registration is still available, and 5K is filling up quickly; the race is limited to 3,000 entrants.
2014 will be the 21st running of the event in Red Bank: The George Sheehan Classic began in 1981 as the Asbury Park 10K Classic and quickly became one of the major road running events on the national calendar. The race moved to Red Bank in 1994 and was renamed to honor the memory of Dr. George Sheehan, the prominent author, philosopher and area physician. “The Doc” has been called the “father of the running boom” in the United States. Last year, the Sheehan family released a new book of his life's work to commemorate the 20th year of his passing.

Atlantic Highlands, NJ - On Saturday, June 7, the Second Story Art Gallery presents “Side by Side” with artists Richard Buntzen & Marge Levine, with an opening reception from 6-8pm at 78 First Avenue, Atlantic Highlands. Exhibition runs from June 6 – July 5
Second Story Art Gallery is proud to be showcasing the work of two artists who find inspiration in the process of each other’s work. Richard Buntzen, who works primarily with collage, has studied with and worked alongside Marge Levine, a noted and celebrated New Jersey plein-air pastel artist. At first glance, the work of these two artists seems to come from vastly different origins, yet at closer inspection we find relationships and conversations that point to their shared vision of color and form – a vision that transcends their differences.
