The Red Bank Classic is organized and hosted by the Red Bank Business Alliance and the Red Bank RiverCenter with the support of over 45 local businesses. The community event will include a fun kids’ run after the 5k and a festive, family-friendly block party on Monmouth Street open to all. The block party will feature live music from Victoria Taylor, a corn hole and lots of activities for kids.
