In 1977, five hundred runners lined up for the first Spring Lake Five. Thanks to your help, the race has grown into one of the country’s biggest and best running events. Over the past 17 years, Friends of the Spring Lake 5, Inc. has donated over $2,100,000 to local charities, volunteer organizations, town initiatives and Spring Lake Recreation.
Start checking the website in late November for the 2018 race for updates. Registration has been opening up the first week of February for the last 20 years.
Winners of the 2017 event were Justin Sheid in 25:20 and Nicolette Mateescu in 28:11.
