JSRC In the Know
RRCA Guidelines
As Summer begins winding to a close and the sun starts rising later and setting earlier, we want to remind our membership to take precautions to ensure a safe run. As an RRCA-Affiliated Running Club, we recommend members familiarize themselves with the RRCA General Running Safety Tips found at
RRCA General Running Safety Tips
  • DON’T WEAR HEADPHONES! Use your ears to be aware of your surroundings. Your ears may help you avoid dangers your eyes may miss during evening or early morning runs.
  • Run against traffic to see/observe approaching automobiles. By facing on-coming traffic, you may be able to react quicker than if it is behind you.
  • Look both ways before crossing. Be sure the driver of a car acknowledges your right-of-way before crossing in front of a vehicle. Obey traffic signals.
  • Carry identification or write your name, phone number, and blood type on the inside sole of your running shoe. Include any medical information.
  • Always stay alert and aware of what’s going on around you. The more aware you are, the less vulnerable you are.
  • Trust your intuition about a person or an area. React on your intuition and avoid a person or situation if you’re unsure. If something tells you a situation is not “right”, it isn’t.
  • Alter or vary your running route pattern; run in familiar areas if possible. In unfamiliar areas, such as while traveling, contact a local RRCA club or running store. Know where open businesses or stores are located in case of emergency.
  • Run with a partner. Run with a dog.
  • Carry a cell phone or change for a phone call. Know the locations of public phones along your regular route.
  • Write down or leave word of the direction of your run. Tell friends and family of your favorite running routes.
  • Avoid unpopulated areas, deserted streets, and overgrown trails. Avoid unlit areas, especially at night. Run clear of parked cars or bushes.
  • Ignore verbal harassment and do not verbally harass others. Use discretion in acknowledging strangers. Look directly at others and be observant, but keep your distance and keep moving.
  • Wear reflective material if you must run before dawn or after dark. Avoid running on the street when it is dark.
  • Practice memorizing license tags or identifying characteristics of strangers.
  • Carry a noisemaker. Get training in self-defense.
  • When using multi-use trails, follow the rules of the road. If you alter your direction, look over your shoulder before crossing the trail to avoid a potential collision with an oncoming cyclist or passing runner.
  • CALL POLICE IMMEDIATELY if something happens to you or someone else, or you notice anyone out of the ordinary. It is important to report incidents immediately.
The Addicted Runner | Thursday, August 8
On Thursday, August 8, the Thursday Night Belmar Group Run will welcome a special guest! We are thrilled to be joined by Marc David , author of The Addicted Runner . Marc is one of the original running “streakers,” having not missed a day in over 36 years. We’re also trying to convince him to join us for our traditional post-run dinner so we have more time to chat with him—but can’t promise that as yet. He will have copies of his book available for anyone interested. Marc will also be volunteering at the Asbury Park Sheehan Classic packet pickup on Friday, August 9 as well as on race day. Come on out and show Marc what makes the JSRC the best darn running club around!

I love to run because it helps me stay fit. Additionally, it helps me stay focused and reduces stress. I am very much into health and wellness and completed my first Tri on August 2! I also signed up for the Saturday in the Park 5K in Holmdel! I have not run that race in years! I look forward to meeting new people in the running club who have a health and wellness for life attitude!

NYRR 2019
New York City Marathon
Sunday, November 3 | Central Park, NYC
The Jersey Shore Running Club has a long history of volunteering at the finish line for the NYC Marathon. Every year, we let the membership know that we need volunteers and that this is a great day for running.

The NYRR are very firm on the deadline for volunteering and last year we had several members who waited too long to sign up and they missed this great event.

Here is your chance to work at the finish line for the 2019 NYC Marathon . We work the VIP tent, which is just after the finish line. We spot finishers that are designated to come to our area. We also provide the runners with support at the tent, offering food, Gatorade and uniting them with their clothing bag.

The atmosphere at the finish line is amazing. The size of everything is huge; you have to see it to believe it!

The JSRC provides a bus to and from Central Park at a nominal cost.
Soooo, we are asking that anyone interested contact Alan Paschedag , .
Our area at the finish line is closed to new registrations. We gather name and email addresses and work with NYRR directly to add our volunteers to the finish area.

Requests to be added to the NYRR registration list should be emailed
to Alan no later than August 16, 2019.

Yes, it is still early. You can cancel later, but you won't be able to register for a spot later. We prefer you don’t cancel but things can come up between now and November.
You will need a NYRR profile, with a photo.
It is free and easy to set up.
Sign up while you can. Once the deadline arrives NYRR will not accept late registration requests!
Come join the fun and experience the NYC Marathon like few can.
