News & Notes - July 10
With exactly one month to go till the Chase, here are the latest and greatest News & Notes:
• $3 doesn't go as far as it used to but that's what you save if you sign-up for the 2013 Belmar Chase before July 16th. Click here to register now. Just think of all the cool ways you can spend that $3 you just saved in Belmar? A Happy Hour beer at Connolly Station, three hours worth of parking right on Ocean Avenue or an ice cold lemonade on the boardwalk near the start/finish of the Chase from Jake's Crab Shack.
• How are you arriving to the Chase? If you live in Monmouth County and want to experience the Ultimate Driving Machine, you can be the lucky Chaser who gets VIP service from Circle BMW. A BMW, a pre-race light breakfast and your race packet will be waiting for you as your step out your door on the morning of August 10th. You'll be brought right to Ocean Avenue in Belmar and then get the same Ultimate Driving Experience back home after the Chase! For a chance to win, simply email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Winner will be chosen at random during race week.
• Our 2013 Belmar Chase medal design is set. All Kids Chase participants will receive a medal and the first 2,000 Belmar Chase 5k participants receive one as well. Click here to check out the design. If you want to personalize your medal, PR Medal Engravers will be on-site immediately following the Chase to engrave your name and finishing time. Cost to personalize your medal on-site will be just $5 (remember that $3 you just saved above...you can put it to good use here).
• The Atlantic Club and Manasquan Savings Bank are in the Chase. If you are a member of The Atlantic Club check out the twice weekly Belmar Chase training sessions available this month at the club's Manasquan location. Speaking of Manasquan, a big Chase thank you to Manasquan Savings Bank for providing the all-important runner goodie-bags for this year's event.
• The field for the 2013 Barnabas Health Celebrity Chase just got better. Belmar's Mayor Doherty and Lake Como's Councilman Brian Wilton have confirmed they are ready to challenge Mayor Schneider for the title this year. Look out for them training on Belmar's boards.
