The Jersey Shore Running Club (JSRC) is the largest running club in New Jersey, with close to 1,000 members. JSRC is a chapter of the Road Runners Club of America. Dedicated both to running and to the community, JSRC members enjoy both the camaraderie of running with friends and participation in a wide range of social, running and community-minded activities, many of which support local neighborhood and charitable organizations. Every year, through more than 50 of its own sponsored events and others in which it is an active participant, JSRC raises more than a half-million dollars for area charitable groups such as Special Olympics New Jersey, The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties, Jersey Shore Dream Center, and many other worthwhile causes. The JSRC offers a variety of benefits, including group runs several times a week, planned social events, discounts on race entry fees, and a regular newsletter.
