Sea Isle City’s 10-Mile Island Run
When: Saturday, August 10th from 6:30 pm to 8 pm
Where: 44th Street Beach, Sea Isle City
On Aug. 10, the Sea Isle City Beach Patrol (SICBP) will host their 43rd Annual Captain Bill Gallagher 10-Mile Island Run along Sea Isle’s Beach and Promenade. With over 1500 athletes participating each year, this event is one of the largest athletic competitions in the region. The race will begin at 5:30 p.m., rain or shine. However, an electrical storm will necessitate postponing the run until the first evening that conditions permit. The 10-Mile Island Run takes place on a flat, traffic-free race course that begins and ends in front of the SICBP Headquarters, located on the 44th Street Beach. The course runs along the Sea Isle City Promenade for approximately 2.5-miles, and the remaining distance takes place on the sand. Low tide occurs at 4:45 p.m. on August 10, which will allow for several hours of excellent running surface along the shoreline.
