Beauty and The Beach Run™ is a 5-mile race for women, by women, on the New Jersey Shore coastline with beautiful scenic views of the beach. Beauty is exclusively for women and benefits Aslan Youth Ministries, a non-profit organization founded in 1975 and headquartered in Red Bank, NJ.
The event is held at Pier Village at the Ocean Place Resort & Spa located in Long Branch, New Jersey, and features many amenities such as racing along the boardwalk with beautiful views, a healthy breakfast, an Expo, celebrity emcees, and corporate sponsors. We welcome runners and walkers as well as corporate teams and groups. Registered participants receive a long-sleeve running shirt, commemorative medal, and an official time for a 5-mile run, plus we have added a 5K run or 5K walk option this year.
