Runners jingle their way through Asbury Park 5K Santa Run
Thousands of runners jingled their way through the fourth annual Asbury Park 5K Santa Run Saturday.
Runners dressed up in Santa outfits flooded the start line at Ocean Avenue at 10 a.m.
The event benefits the charity Lunch Break, which provides free food, clothing, life skills and fellowship to those in need in Monmouth County.
Each runner paid $30 to enter the race, with a portion of the proceeds going directly to the charity.
There was also a toy drive for runners to donate gifts to children in need during the holidays.
The after-party was held at the Stone Pony with live music and holiday cheer.
