Inspiring Hope and Happiness for Those with Cystic Fibrosis

Longport Take A Breather Beach Dash

This year’s Take A Breather Beach Dash has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 Pandemic. We hope to be back better than ever in 2021.

This 3 Mile out-and-back race is for both runners and walkers of all ages and begins at 6:30 pm. Over 200 runners and walkers come out to this summer event to support the Take A Breather Foundation’s mission of granting breathers, in the form of respites, for children and young adults battling cystic fibrosis (CF)


The 5th Annual Longport Take A Breather Beach Dash is a NJ race for runners/walkers looking for something slightly different from the traditional road race. It is approx a 3 mile Out & Back on the beach and occurs at mid-tide, which means you will not be running/walking on soft sand, but on hard packed sand similar to a dirt trail.

  • CASH PRIZES awarded to the top 3 Male & Female Finishers.
  • Medals awarded to top Male & Female age group winners.
  • Out-and-back course on hard packed sand.
  • Electronic chip timing
  • Custom Designed T-Shirts to first 200 registrants, therefore Register Early!
  • Shoes are optional
