Press release from Peak Projects

Run the HookThe live event production company Peak Projects has announced a brand new road race, taking place at one of the Jersey Shore’s most iconic places, Sandy Hook. Scheduled for the morning of Sunday, May 15, Run The Hook will commence its inaugural run — and the start of a new Shore tradition — from the historic Fort Hancock area at the north end of the Hook. The 11 a.m. race action will include 5K and 10K distances for runners of all abilities, and a portion of proceeds will benefit Clean Ocean Action, the local nonprofit dedicated to improving and protecting the quality of the waterways in the New Jersey and New York region.

According to Daragh Kneeshaw, co-founder with Joey Garafalo of Peak Projects and Run the Hook “Our hometowns and beaches have seen more than their fair share of hardships over these past several years, so it’s a thrill for us to be able to showcase Sandy Hook in our debut event, and simultaneously help the area through our partnership with Clean Ocean Action.”

In addition to the food offered before the race, there will be a lineup of local food trucks on the venue grounds for spectators to enjoy as they take in the breathtaking views of the Sandy Hook Bay.

Go here to sign up for the May 15 event, with limited-time registration pricing of $40 for the10K race, and $30 for the 5K. Registration includes access to the race, custom t-shirt, gift bag with products and coupons from race sponsors, timed chip results, and entry to a nearby after-party (location to be announced) after the race.
