Written by the event's organizers:
Twelve Marines from McGuire/Ft. Dix will storm Seaside Park on Thursday to deliver the first official Seaside Semper Five race t-shirt to Seaside Park Mayor Robert Matthies.
As part of the ceremony, Mayor Matthies will reveal the new race logo and officially proclaim September 13th as Semper Five Day throughout Seaside Park. The Marines will then run the official race route – on the boardwalk and along the ocean – carrying the United States Flag.
This September, in the wake of the 9/11 anniversary, Seaside Park, will honor our Marines and Sailors in one of the area’s most significant fund raising events of the year. Thousands of spectators will line the boardwalk, as runners take to the boards on a scenic certified course along the ocean for the First Annual Seaside Semper Five Marine Corps Charity 5K Run/Walk, all benefitting the MARSOC Foundation.
WHEN: Thursday, April 24th
Ceremony begins promptly at 10 a.m. EST
WHERE: Seaside Park Boardwalk
Ocean Avenue and 7th Street (on the boardwalk)
Seaside Park, N.J. 08752
