A.C. Marathon

The Atlantic City marathon, half-marathon, 10K and 5K races come to the boards and beyond Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 21 and 22. Nearly 3,000 runners will pound the pavements in this annual fitness event. Start time for the 5K and 10K is 9 a.m. Saturday. The marathon goes off at 8 a.m. Sunday. Both begin at Bally’s.

For those looking for some additional race motivation, Olympian runner Jeff Galloway will host his Running School Clinic from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Park Room of Bally’s. He’ll have tips and tricks and also cover topics such as pacing, nutrition, injuries, running form, heat, increasing speed and more.

The race has partnered with New Jersey’s own Double Nickel Brewing Co. and will feature their Vienna Lager — winner for Best Beer at the Atlantic City Beer and Music Fest this year. The finish line beer garden will be at Harry’s Oyster Bar and Seafood and feature live music and food open to the public.

Registration costs vary by race. Bally’s is located at 1900 Boardwalk in A.C. Go to ACRaceSeries.com.
