This race is run concurrently with the New Jersey Marathon. The start line for both races is in Oceanport and the finish line for both races is on the boardwalk in Long Branch. Obviously, there was an increase in security measures. No bags at the start or finish lines. All athletes had to place items into clear plastic bags. No one without a race number could be in the “secure” start area. These measures meant that I had to rely on…
