Packet pick-up on Friday 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM at  Road Runner Sports, Broad Street, Shrewsbury, NJ

This premiere race held at the NJ shore is one of the few 5-mile run races in the area.

The first Beauty and the Beach Run Race was held in 2007.  Thankfully in the past few years we created a successful hybrid race where runners and walkers can choose to participate on-site on their own or with a team/clubs or fundraise for Aslan Youth.

In celebration of our work in bringing together people from all walks of life and of all racial backgrounds to benefit Aslan’s Children, our 16th Annual Beauty and the Beach Run Race will be held at beautiful Sandy Hook, NJ.

Aslan Youth Ministries is thankful for the hundreds of thousands of dollars raised from runners and walkers over the years.  Historically, the race raises awareness of our mission to serve at-risk youth residing in Monmouth County NJ.  All the children we serve live below the federal poverty level, who, in addition to experiencing poverty as an adversity, may be subjected to the experiences of abuse, neglect, and family dysfunction, along with a host of other stressors, including community violence, discrimination, and peer victimization.

We have continued innovating our services to support youth, families, and our local communities. An equally essential part of our organization is our volunteer program.  We proudly bring together a community of diverse residents, who serve as tutors and mentors for Aslan’s children.

The heart of our ministry is our volunteers, and many have given so much to help us ensure our children thrive.  Evidence of that is in the many success stories of our Aslan Alumni.  You may read more about Aslan’s Alumni and their proud legacy of successes – click here.

The success of the tutoring program hinges on recruiting dedicated volunteers. COVID-19 put a stop to all volunteer recruitment. However, in late 2020, with funding from Impact 100 Jersey Coast, who believes in our methodology, Aslan was able to hire a Director of Volunteers who is spearheading the efforts of rebuilding the volunteer program and matching tutor/mentors with children.

In addition, Aslan’s work in Haiti is to help people escape the devastation of poverty by empowering their lives – physically, mentally, and spiritually – so that they can, in turn, become change-agents for their nation.   We have a clinic to serve the medical and nutritional needs of the community, Maranatha Church addresses their spiritual needs, and our school is devoted to educational enrichment for the 400 families we work with.

We are proud of our 16th Annual Beauty and the Beach Run designed by women for woman.  Proceeds raised from this race support our programs for at-risk disadvantaged children served by Aslan Youth Ministries.

Race Shirt Sizing Chart

These shirts should fit similar to last year’s shirts, using the chart below.

Womens XS S M L XL XXL
Bust (inches) 30 32 34 36 40 42
Body Length (inches) 23 24 25 26 26.5 27.5

This sizing chart is an approximation.

  • Bust: Start by placing a measuring tape around the largest part of your bust. The tape should be flat but not too snug.
  • Body Length: Measure from the highest point of the shoulder to the bottom of the shirt. Be sure to keep tape straight for a more accurate measurement.
  • Please note: These shirts have a slight taper to them along the sides – they are not cut full like unisex (men’s shirts).
