Moms Rock Run Set for Saturday
Manasquan Elementary PTO event expected to close some borough streets
The inaugural Moms Rock Run is slated to kickoff Saturday, May 12, at the Manasquan Elks Lodge, 17 Stockton Lake Boulevard.
The event is sponsored by the Elementary School's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), which is hoping to raise money for their cause while also giving away $10,000 in raffle prizes to participants and $250 to any school's PTO or PTA that brings the most runners.
The one-mile "fun run" is scheduled to start at 9 a.m., while the 5K race is set for 10 a.m. Both runs will begin just outside the Elks Lodge.
Participants and their families and friends are being invited to the event's after-party from Noon to 3 p.m. at Manasquan Beach House.
T-shirt pick-ups will be held at Manasquan Beach House on Friday, May 11, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and at the Elks Lodge on race day from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Registration will also be available at those times.
The entry fees are $25 for adults and $20 for kids ages 12 and under.
In addition, 50/50 raffle tickets are being sold for $5 each, with a cash prize of over $1000.
And raffle tickets for four "grand prizes" are available for $10 each (or three for $20). Each prize is valued at over $1000.
The prizes include: a beach cruiser, beach badges, four Giants football tickets, a full tailgate party, health and wellness items, "Taste of Manasquan" wristbands, massage therapy, and more.
There will also be awards for male and female age groups and "champagne vouchers" for all ladies ages 21 and older who cross the finish line.
Residents are advised to expect temporary traffic delays and street closures from approximately 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
The affected streets are in the areas between East Main Street and Stockton Lake Boulevard from Colby Avenue to North Potter Avenue, and Ocean Avenue and First and Second Avenues between Stockton Avenue and Brielle Road.
Parking will be prohibited on Ocean Avenue.
A limited amount of long sleeve shirts are available for $15. Contact Maggy at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your size.
