On Saturday morning, October 4th, 2014, the Bay Head Home and School Association and the town of Bay Head, will again host the fall season’s most anticipated running event! The Shark Run 5k is comprised of a flat, fast course (new this year) through the beautiful oceanfront town of scenic, Bay Head. It is a USATF Certified Course NJ05018LMB with digital clock and electronic chip timing (see it here). This exceptionally fun event will feature not only hundreds of experienced and novice runners, but also nearly 100 children. We will also hold separate kids fun races following the 5k.
