Meridian Health Announces Dates for its 2013 5k Races

Meridian Health Heart & Sole Cup offers $12,000 in prize money

Are you a competitive runner and looking for your next challenge? Or are you trying to keep your family active and looking to run/walk a 5k together? If so, then join Meridian Cardiovascular Network for its second annual Heart and Sole Cup, a series of three 5k runs/walks. The series begins on Sunday, June 9 at Ocean Medical Center in Brick, followed by Bayshore Community Hospital in Holmdel on Saturday, June 29, and Jersey Shore University Medical Center on Sunday, September 15.

At stake this year is $12,000 in total prize money, with $3,000 up for grabs at each of the three races. In addition, $3,000 in prize money will be awarded to the series winners of the Meridian Health Heart & Sole Cup. Each race will award prize money to the top three overall for men and women, and top three winners in five year age groups. Following each 5k race, there will be free kids races and activities to round out this family fun event.

Runners who complete all three Meridian Health Heart & Sole Cup races will receive a commemorative gift at the final race, the Jersey Shore University Medical Center 5k on Sunday, September 15.
