47th Annual LBI Commemorative 18 Mile Run Sunday October 13

BRANT BEACH - The 47th Annual Long Beach Island Commemorative 18 Mile Run will take place on Sunday, October 13, and begins at 10:30 a.m. in Holgate, the southernmost point of LBI.  Participants will run north on Long Beach Blvd. for 18 miles and finish at Barnegat Light State Park. 

The event is sponsored by St. Francis Community Center, 4700 Long Beach Blvd., Brant Beach, NJ, in cooperation with the LBI Jewish Community Center, 2411 Long Beach Blvd., Long Beach Township.  Applications are now being accepted and registration will continue until race day.

Since 1973, the 18-Mile Run has been held in memory of the 11 Israeli Olympic athletes who were slain at the Munich Olympics on September 5, 1972.

Due to the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the race will also continue to be dedicated to those who lost their lives in America on that unforgettable day.  St. Francis Center and the Jewish Community Center will continue commemorating both events.  Mile markers, bearing the names of the victims of both tragedies, will be posted along the race course, in memoriam.

Buses will be provided for registered runners, and will begin leaving for the starting line at 8 a.m.  Buses will continue to run from the finish line to the Community Center. The finish line closes at 2:15 p.m.  All runners and their families are invited to a recognition luncheon at the Center immediately following the race.
