The Jersey Shore Running Club’s 10th Annual New Year’s Eve Twilight Run was held on December 31. 2013 in Sea Girt, N.J. It was one last run for 2013.
The runners gathered at Edgars for registration and bib pick up starting at 4:30 p.m. At 5:30 p.m. They walked over to the Sea Girt National Guard Training Center which is next door for the start of the 3 mile run. Many runners came decked out in New Year’s Eve garb for the occasion.
The 300 plus runners lined up inside the Center and Race Director, Dan Napaolitan gave them instructions and thanked them for coming out. Phil Hinck of Monmouth Beach then gave the runners the command to start.
The runners made their way around the roads inside the Center and finished near the start.
This was a celebratory run so there were no formal results or winners. All the runners wore the 2014 bib number. The runners came across with happy faces and were ready to bring in the New Year in Ireland shortly after they finished.
After the run the celebration continued inside Edgars where the runners were treated to a buffet and a celebratory drink for the occasion.
Also celebrating were Phil and Penny Hinck of Monmouth Beach who were marking their 15th Wedding Anniversary. What better way to celebrate than with all their running friends.
Happy New Year and have an awesome year of great running in 2014.
