The event, run in conjunction with Townsquare Media radio stations 105.7 The Hawk and 94.3 The Point, raises money for the Manasquan and Point Pleasant Beach recreation departments. The inaugural event raised over $29,000 for the two organizations.

Featuring a series of tugs of war using 1,200 feet of rope, the event pits 25-person teams from Manasquan against 25-person teams from Point Pleasant Beach. In last year'€™s inaugural event, the Manasquan side won three of the five championship heats, capped by a Manasquan win in the final tug pitting the two high school football teams against each other.

'€œLast year'€™s inaugural event was truly special. Seeing 50 competitors separated by the Inlet squaring off in a Tug of War was quite the sight to behold,'€ said committee chairman Geoff Brown. '€œThis year'€™s event promises to be even bigger and better. We'€™re very much looking forward to October 12th.'€

Each side of the Inlet will include their own party atmosphere with live music, food vendors, craft vendors, and more. Those interested in being a vendor are instructed to email ManasquanIntracoastalTug@gmail.com.

"We were thrilled with the support from the community for this event'€™s debut last year. Jersey Mike's has always strived to be local partners in our area and this event, right in our backyard, is a perfect fit," said Rich Hope, Chief Marketing Officer of Jersey Mike'€™s. "We're glad to join the Manasquan Inlet Intracoastal Tug to raise money for these outstanding recreation departments."
