Since 1973, the 18 Mile Run has been held in memory of the 11 Israeli Olympic athletes who were slain at the Munich Olympics on September 5, 1972. Due to the tragic events of September 11, 2001, the race will also continue to be dedicated to those who lost their lives in America on that unforgettable day. Mile markers, bearing the names of the victims of both tragedies will be posted along the race course, in memoriam.

The run begins at 10:30 a.m. in Holgate, participants will run north on Long Beach Blvd. for 18 miles and finish at Barnegat Light State Park.

Buses will be provided for registered runners, and will begin leaving for the starting line at 8 a.m. Buses will continue to run from the finish line to the Community Center. The finish line closes at 2:15 p.m. All runners are invited to a recognition luncheon at the center immediately following the race.

The event is sponsored by St. Francis Community Center in cooperation with the LBI Jewish Community Center. Applications are now being accepted and registration will continue until race day.
