    Running over the Longport Bridge was the main highlight of the OCNJ half! This is a beautiful run through Ocean city with spectacular views of the ocean, boardwalk and through the town. It was very organized and high energy provided by the local high school! Also loved the long sleeve dry fit shirt

    Enjoyed the course for the most part, at mile 2ish you will run across Longport bridge and then you will go out a bit, turn around and do it again at mile 4ish. Otherwise, the course is flat and a good stretch is on the ocean city boardwalk which is neat. You come off the boardwalk at about mile 9 and go into a residential street, turn around and 10 miles and head back to the boardwalk. This stretch for myself didn’t seem like it was ever gonna end.
    They had plenty of water stops and cold/clean washcloths in 2 locations (a little piece of heaven)
    Great long sleeve shirt, great medal, great food after finish.

    Even though I was able to set a PR I did not reach the goal I had set out for, I had a late race miss step that tweeked my calf and began to cause bad pulling in calves. But nonetheless I was able to set a PR and finish with a friend. Excellent Experience I will be back.

    This was my first ever Half Marathon attempt and I throughly enjoyed it. I traveled 4 and half hours from Central Pa to Make my first attempt at 13.1. The Friendly Nature of the town and Registration Crew makes me want to run it again. And I will be running it again and bringing a friend in 2017

    Well organized, great setting & scenic course. Running on the boards on the boardwalk was a little tricky but once you got the hang of it there was no problem. Post race food was great. Free parking down at the boardwalk was a definite positive!
