Though we had to cancel the 47th Annual Neptune Festival Boardwalk Weekend, we are happy to offer a chance to participate in Neptune's 8k Race...we are going virtual this year, and hope you will join us!
The race will take place as planned, on Saturday, September 26, 2020. If you cannot run on that day, you will have until Sunday, October 4th to complete an 8k and upload your results to our leaderboard. With your race packet, you will receive instructions on how to upload your results, as well as how to create your own post-race party!
Each Race Bib will include vouchers for two free beers at participating local breweries (Smartmouth Pilot House, New Realm Brewing, and Wasserhund Brewing), and one food voucher to be redeemed at participating Ynot Italian locations.
Each runner will be mailed the following to arrive before September 26th:
You are free to run your 8k wherever you would like, but see below for suggested race routes that start and finish at participating breweries and Ynot Italian locations:
If you have already registered for Neptune's 8k Race, and you would like to run virtually with us, you do not need to do anything! We will use the information provided to mail your packet to you in September.
If you have already registered for Neptune's 8k Race, and you choose not to run virtually this year, we are happy to offer a free deferral to 2021. You will have until August 17th to defer your registration. After that time, your registration will default to the virtual option. An email has been sent to you with information on how to defer your registration.
