Overview

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. Last year, the Friends of the Spring Lake 5, Inc. race raised over $50,000 for Spring Lake Recreation, the numerous volunteer groups that support the event and various charities. Funds were also used in conjunction with the Borough of Spring Lake to finish the work on extending the Spring Lake Boardwalk to enhance the safety of runners and walkers at its north end terminus.
