Garden State Cheetahs is a running group that promotes these three goals.
Fitness for all: Whether you are a beginner or an experienced runner, you will find a place here. Several of the charter members that trained with the group have completed multiple half marathons. We encourage family members and kids to join us for the 5Ks that accompany half marathons, making this a fun family event.
Make it fun: You will be training with easy going, friendly fellow runners. You will only compete with yourself. The group will motivate you as much as you will motivate everyone else in the group. Apart from running, we also do a variety of fun and adventurous activities like kayaking, biking, obstacle races, hiking, river rafting, skiing, etc...
Fundraising for Charities: We use one of the events we participate in every year, as a fundraiser and donate the money for a good cause. In October 2013, about 50 members participated in Ocean City Half Marathon and 5K and raised over $5,500. In October 2014, about 120 members participated in Seaside Heights Half Marathon and 5K and raised $12000 for the charities.
