Looking for a great way to cap spring break or raise your spirits for Easter? Maybe you're just looking for something to whet your appetite for Earth Day or a sumptuous brunch with the family.
You can do all of that AND help the American Littoral Society care for the coast by participating in the 2nd Annual Lobster Run on Saturday, April 15 at 9 a.m. in Asbury Park, NJ. Once again the Society will partner with Langosta Lounge and Split Second Racing for this fun and fulfilling event.
The run/walk will start and finish on the Asbury Park boardwalk outside The Langosta Lounge. The event will be followed by an optional after-party at the relaxing and eclectic restaurant. Participants can sign-up for food, the run or a combo of both. Proceeds from the event will benefit the American Littoral Society, a 501c3 charity based in Sandy Hook, NJ that has been protecting and restoring the coast since 1961. Those who can't run or want to do more for the cause can fundraise or make a donation through the event registration page (https://raceforum.com/lobster).
New this year will be a time-trial format that will eliminate starting line congestion and build a bit of suspense into the proceedings. Our chip-timing system allows participants to start at any point between 9 and 10 a.m. Overall winners and top age group finishers will be determined once the last participant crosses the finish line. A real-time electronic leader board will allow everyone to keep an eye on finish times while enjoying food and a mimosa or bloody mary.
The event will be held rain or shine and include live race results and awards for the top three male and female finishers, age-group winners. This year the runner with the best lobster look will also win a one-year family membership to the American Littoral Society and the envy of everyone else at the event.
Online registration is available at Raceforum.com/Lobster. Register before April 8 for discounted entry fee and guaranteed race t-shirt. Event price will increase at midnight on April 7.
Early packet pick-up from 4-7 p.m. on Friday April 14 at Road Runner Sports, 490 Broad St Suite 1, Shrewsbury, NJ. On-site registration and packet pick-up begins at 8 a.m. on race day.
