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 16 years, Friends of the Spring Lake 5, Inc. has donated over $1,800,000 to local charities, volunteer organizations, town initiatives and Spring Lake Recreation.
KIDS REGISTRATION WILL REOPEN ON FEBRUARY 15. See details on our KIDS' RACE PAGE
MISSED REGISTRATION? Help a charity and you can run. Thanks to the Friends of the Spring Lake Five, Inc., and Spring Lake 5 Mile Run, a limited number of entries are donated to and available through charitable organizations. Charity Slots are available on our CHARITIES page, link above.
Transfers – If you are a registered runner, and find that you cannot make the run, the Spring Lake Five has an OFFICIAL transfer policy in place; please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting transfer information. Transfer opportunities for 2017 will be limited. If you are not registered, and are looking for a bib, be careful of anyone promising you their bib. Unofficial sale, trade and/or transfer of race entry/bibs and timing devices are strictly prohibited and will result in the disqualification and/or banning of any individuals involved from future events.
