This race is in memory of two of Mantoloking’s most gifted and accomplished runners whose lives were tragically cut short in the summer of 2000. Casie Kerr and Chrissy D'Alessandro Shaheen will always be remembered and honored in our 4th of July running race.
Both girls were united while alive through a love of running; and after their deaths, Mantoloking residents united in mourning their loss.
The Casie and Chrissy Mantoloking mile is a celebration of the life of both girls. Friends and family continue to run, walk and participate in the Mantoloking mile every year in their memory.
