New Jersey Marathon
Welcome to the main event

Run through the diverse neighborhoods and business districts of Oceanport, Monmouth Beach, Long Branch, Deal, Allenhurst, Loch Arbour, Asbury Park and Ocean Grove. This scenic, fast and flat course has been very popular with both runners and spectators alike. It is a point-to-point course that has proven to be a good choice for those attempting to qualify for the B.A.A. Boston Marathon, as so many have done with us in the past.
