Hurricane Sandy devastated our beloved Monmouth Beach as it did many of the communities in this area, but particularly hard hit was Monmouth Beach School. The school took in upwards of 3 feet of water throughout and has been closed for repairs since. Our children are being bused to various schools in neighboring towns and although our school will not likely reopen until the new school year in September, your support and participation in this run will assist us in bringing Monmouth Beach School back to the way it was prior to the storm. All the funds raised through the Monmouth Beach PTO is slated towards the school's recovery and providing teaching materials and items lost during the storm.

Registration forms are available at Monmouth Beach School, MB Borough Hall, at www.mbschool.org or register online at www.RaceForum.com/MB.

Register by May 1st to receive a dry wicking shirt and goodie bag and reduced entry fees of $20. Registration on race day will begin at 8 a.m. on Griffin Street at the Monmouth Beach School. Race Day Fees: $25 for 3 mile & Dolphin Mile and for the Kids Race.
