Description

Welcome to the 40th Anniversary 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 Phil Hinck, 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 $1,000,000 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.

We expect the 2016 race to reach its entry limit quickly. In order to maintain the quality of the event, this years race entries will be strictly limited. Please enter early to insure yourself a spot!
