Do not park on Ocean Avenue. You can park anywhere else on the street in Asbury Park for free until 2 pm. After 2 pm the meters are enforced. There are three large lots along Ocean Avenue that are free all day. For the 5k and half please do not park in the lot by the old Carousel and Casino building as we need to reserve that for volunteers and returning relay teams vehicles. 5k and half runners should use the lots by the Stone Pony and the Wonder Bar.
Please note that there is road construction in Asbury Park on Kingsley with sections closed in one or both directions - so allow extra time in the morning to get to the start. If you picked up your bib ahead of time (see Bib Pick Up Schedule Below) there is no need to check in - you can go right to the start.
The start for the Half Marathon will be on Ocean Avenue in front of Convention Hall. The start of the 5K will be on the boardwalk on the south side of Convention Hall. Both races will start promptly at 8:30 am.

And remember to bring your bib into Convention Hall after the race to get your t shirt and get in line for refreshments. Beer will be available for purchase inside. No food or drink can leave the Hall.
For Relay Teams - your team shirts will be in one package - so one person should pick up for the team.

People have asked about the Asbury Park Half Course. It is planned to be pretty much the same as last year. We just need to wait until we get the status of some planned boardwalk construction to finalize. here is what it was last year.. http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=6227657
