Manasquan Mid-Winter Beach Run

February 18, 2012
About 2 Miles

Phil Coffin, 13:50

You think it’s hard to win a mug at Ashenfelter? Try the Manasquan Mid-Winter Beach Run. Mugs go to the top 10 finishers, both men and women … and there were almost 1,800 participants this year. Yes, it’s a funky race. It’s listed as about two miles, presumably because it’s hard to certify course with a little over a quarter-mile on the beach. (And it isn’t hard-packed sand, as my legs were certain after faltering from 6:42 pace to 9:14 pace.) There is no timing company, no chip times, no results beyond the top 10s, no age-group awards. But runners receive a cool-looking fleece vest, and there is a great atmosphere and a lot of fun at the race. We were also blessed with a great day: sun, nearly 50-degree temperatures and the sort of mid-winter bliss that makes you think spring may be here soon.  – Phil Coffin
