This year marks our 10th Annual Monster Dash 5K Run/Walk! The Monster Dash annually draws almost 450 local and state wide runners! After continuous, overwhelmingly positive response, we expect to draw even more runners and walkers of all ages from around Point Pleasant Beach, Bay Head, Mantoloking, and throughout the tri-state area every year. We expect an enormous turn out with the addition of our 1 Mile Fun Run new this year! Proceeds from this event will benefit the Point Pleasant First Aid & Emergency Squad, an all-volunteer, non-profit organization that has provided emergency medical services free of charge, 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year since 1929.
