Last summer, participants in the Seaside Semper Five race never had a chance to finish the race. That's because shortly before it began, an explosion rocked the area near the starting line, an act that turned into a terror investigation stretching from Ocean County to New York City.

This year, not only is the Seaside Semper Five charity run returning, but it's become a true symbol of what the Marine charity that the event benefits stands for.

As the official website states:

It's clear that this is an event that not only honors those who serve our country, but is also a symbol of the resilience and determination that America has shown time and again when faced with acts of terror.

The event will be Saturday, September 16th and kicks off right outside the Beachcomber Bar & Grill at Ocean Terrace in Seaside Heights.
