The Sea Isle City Beach Patrol will host the 2018 Captain Bill Gallagher 10-Mile Island Run on Saturday, Aug. 4 on the 44th Street Beach. Individual runners as well as members of organizations and running clubs are invited to participate in this popular competition.
The 10-Mile Island Run will begin at 5:45 p.m., rain or shine. Due to safety concerns, an electrical storm will necessitate cancelling the run. Weather cancellations will be announced by 4:45 p.m. on the Beach Patrol’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
The race takes place on a traffic-free, flat course. Approximately 2.5-miles of the course is on Sea Isle’s paved Promenade (boardwalk) and the remaining distance of the course is on the beach. Low tide occurs at 8:14 p.m. on Aug. 4, which means participants will be running on hard packed sand similar to a dirt trail.
Online pre-registration for individual runners is available until Wednesday, Aug. 1 at 11:59 p.m. ($20 per runner). Race Day registration ($35 per runner) closes Saturday, Aug. 4 at 4:30 p.m.
Online pre-registration for Teams and Clubs is available until Wednesday, Aug. 1 at 11:59 p.m. ($22 per runner). Registration for Teams and Clubs on Race Day ($37 per runner) closes on Saturday, Aug. 4 at 4:30 p.m. The number of runners allowed per team is unlimited. All team members must complete their own registration form.
Entry fees are non-refundable. High quality event tee-shirts will be given to the first 1,200 registrants.
Compuscore Computer Services will provide “gun time” and “chip time” for each runner. Awards will be presented to the top male and female runners in numerous categories – including cash prizes to the first, second and third place male and female finishers.
