200 Turn Out for Seafood 5 Mile Run
Saturday, September 21, 2002
By Mark Fletcher
Partly cloudy skies and temperatures in the low 70's met about 200 runners for the start of the Seafood 5 Mile Run. This annual run takes place on the streets and boardwalk of Point Pleasant Beach and is held on the third Saturday of September every year. The Seafood 5 Mile Run takes place the same weekend as the Festival of the Sea Block Party in downtown Point Pleasant Beach.
A One Mile Fun Run preceded the 5 Mile Run. Kenny Walsh was the winner of the One Mile Fun Run. Kenny was followed by Eva Wimberley and Joe Benson.
This was the third of three races held this year to benefit the Point Pleasant Lions Club. A 5-kilometer run was held in Point Pleasant Beach the day before Mothers Day, and a 5 mile run was held in Point Pleasant Boro on Fathers Day.
