Christopher Harding, great friend of race director Mike D’Altrui, passed away after a courageous battle with Melanoma on November 13, 2017 at the age of 43. Chris enjoyed his cats, the outdoors, history, especially Civil War Era and taking day trips to historic sites.

He loved life and making people laugh more than anything and will be remembered for his positive outlook, tremendous sense of humor, generosity and loyalty to his family and many friends. We dedicate the 2018 Sea Girt 5K to the memory of Chris Harding and support the cause of finding a cure for Melanoma and other cancers.

This year in addition to Sea Girt Recreation, we will support the Melanoma Research Foundation and make a donation in honor of Chris. You may also make a separate donation to the cause when registering online. For more information please visit
