weekend; register below
The Borough of Wildwood Crest and local
boutique race company DelMoSports are set to host the inaugural
Crest Best 10-Miler running race event on Columbus Day weekend,
Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 6-7, 2018.
The Crest Best 10-Miler’s signature event
will be a 10-mile race scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 7, that will
incorporate breathtaking views of the award-winning beaches and many
other popular locations throughout Wildwood Crest, which was named
the No. 1 Summer Hot Spot in the country in 2017 by TripAdvisor.
The Crest Best 10-Miler will also feature an
accompanying five-mile race on Sunday, as well as separate 5K and
kids’ races on Saturday.
All of the races will begin and end at
Centennial Park, a beachfront park that has quickly become one of
the most iconic locations in Wildwood Crest since being constructed
approximately a decade ago.
The Crest Best 10-Miler will feature
“a-la-carte” pricing, making any or all of the races affordable
for all runners. Each race will cost the same, with a base price of
$19.10 to commemorate the year Wildwood Crest was incorporated as a
borough (1910). Athletes can chose to add a finisher medal, shirt
and buffet breakfast as part of their experience, with the maximum
price for any race capped at $39.99.
