Dear Registered Runner,
After careful consideration, the Spring Lake 5 Committee has decided that the 2021 Spring Lake 5 Mile Run will unfortunately need to be cancelled again this year.
We were hopeful that after the cancellation of last year’s race, the 2021 Spring Lake 5 Mile Run would be able to proceed as historically run on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. However, after contact and feedback with the Governor’s Office, Spring Lake Borough of Emergency Management, and health care professionals, it is unlikely that a race of our size can be currently anticipated for clearance in May. We understand the continued disappointment many might feel about the cancellation of the Race for a second year. Nevertheless, we are confident that the race will continue in 2022. Our top priority is ensuring the safety of our runners, volunteers, and many spectators that line our course.
Please visit our website at www.springlake5.org to obtain further information on the above.
We look forward to seeing you next year, and hope that you and your families stay safe and healthy during these challenging times.
Ed Hale, SL5 Race Director
Rich Sciria, Chairman, SL5 Trustees
Welcome to the 44th Running of the Spring Lake Five Mile Run, Inc. 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.
The Spring Lake Five Mile Run is organized by the Spring Lake Five Race Committee and Race Director Ed Hale, under the guidance of the Friends of the Spring Lake Five Inc., a not-for-profit organization. After payment of Race expenses, all proceeds from the Race are donated to charitable organizations or allocated for town projects. Since 2002, the race has raised over $2,690,000 for numerous volunteer groups that support the event, Spring Lake Recreation and other charitable organizations. Funds were also used in conjunction with the Borough of Spring Lake for work on extending the Spring Lake Boardwalk to enhance the safety of runners and walkers at its north end terminus.
