  • in 2016 now ... McClearly wants to run the 100 mile course in under 27 hours and raise $10,000 for Ocean of Love


On Saturday, June 25th McCleary will make the 100 mile run beginning in Clifton at the Applebee's there .... he will make his way south with stops in Middletown, Ocean, Howell and Lacey (Applebee's) before finishing here in Ocean County in Manahawkin at the Applebee's on Route 72.
