Beauty and the Beach RunTM is traditionally a women-only race. However, unprecedented times call for new beginnings.
The year 2020 has been a difficult year, with the pandemic and a global call-to-action for racial equality and justice. We at Aslan recognize and celebrate our long history of service to African-American children. Our belief that Black lives matter has been Aslan’s mission for 45 years. We’ve helped over 4,000 children achieve their goals and dreams, by bringing together diverse leadership, staff and volunteers to benefit our children.
To commemorate our 45th anniversary this year, we open the race to men, and we invite everyone to participate and celebrate our cause. The race will be known this year as Beauty and the Beach Run ~ “Change of Pace” ~ a Run for Justice & Reconciliation.
Due to State of NJ and local government mandates we cannot plan the race. However, by expanding the Beauty and the Beach Run to a virtual option, and including men, we are now able to recruit runners and walkers nationwide. We will continue our very unique 5 mile run, but we are now offering a 5 mile walk, a 5K run and walk option. This means the race will open up July 26, 2020 and virtual race participants may upload their time between July through Sunday, September 27, 2020.
