NJ marathon on this Sunday
May 5, 2012 by Sarah
The New Jersey marathon will be taking place on the 6th of May, 2012. This year organizers have changed the location to the Shore. The half marathon will be taking place at 6.50am. The full marathon will start at 8am. Attendees should be aware that the finish line is at the Promenade.
Anyone who plans on taking part in the marathon will need to register for the event. Online registration will close at 11:59pm on May the 2nd. Those who miss online registration can register in person on Friday and Saturday night at the Health and Fitness Expo. The expo is being held at Monmouth park. Attendees should be aware that registration will not be available on the day of the event.
This year organizers expect more than 12,000 New Jersey residents to participate. Those who get to the finish line will be rewarded with food, drinks and massages.
Events like this generally need a large turnout to be successful. One way that event organizers can encourage people to participate is marketing the event. Fund raising efforts, marathon events and small functions can benefit from a print campaign. In the past event organizers have had success by using printing services to make up flyers. These flyers contain event information such as location, price and date. Once the flyer printing is completed, organizers can distribute their promotional material to local residents. Those who are organizing big events can also advertise to other NJ towns like Cherry Hill.
