The 17th Annual Bradley Beach 5K was held on Saturday, August 16, 2014 in the Jersey Shore town of Bradley Beach.
The weather was ideal for the nearly 800 runners at the 8:30 a.m. start and lasted that way for the duration of the race.
The night before, kid’s races were held which attracted a spirited field of participants of all ages.
The runners lined up along Ocean Avenue and made their way along the ocean front and through the tree lined streets of the town with a finish back on Ocean Avenue.
Coming in first overall and for the men was Sean Swift of Hoboken in a time of 16:28. He was followed by Kyle Clohan of Tinton Falls in 16:38 and then Jeff Propert of Wall in 17:25.
For the women breaking the tape was Dianne Deolivera of brick in 18:57. She was followed by Amy Bernstein of East Windsor in 19:44 and then Sophia Banatham of Brooklyn, New York in 20:25.
After all the runners finished awards were presented to the top finishers as well as age group winners.
