In last year’s event the first overall and for the men to break the tape at the finish was Haile Mengesha of New York City in a time of 13:50. This was one of the fastest 5k times at the Jersey Shore ever. He was followed right behind by Girma Gebre also of New York City in 13:51 and then Mengistu Nebsi of New York City in 14:17. Andrew Brodeur of Brick finished fourth in 14:47 – a time that would normally win this and many other races.

For the women last year breaking the tape it was Mesevet Kitata of New York City in a time of 16:32. This is also one of the fastest times for a 5k for women in the area. She was followed by Aregash Abate of New York City in a time of 16:53 and then Noel Whitall of Toms River in 17:14.

It will be hard to beat those times.
