The Spring Lake 5 is excited to announce this Saturday, Feb. 29th, at Noon, NBC will air the USA Olympic Marathon trials to determine the members of the team going to Tokyo this Summer. Three former winners of the Spring Lake 5 are in the Women's race. Amanda Marino, Nicolette Mateescu and Sarah Cummings all met the 'A' Standard to qualify. 'A' standard runners receive some financial support from the US Olympic Committee. Amanda grew up at the Shore and competed for the Shore Athletic Club when she won the SL5. Sarah runs for the NYAC and her parents have a home in Spring Lake.  Nicolette teaches in the Princeton Area. Atlanta Track Club is staging the race and former Wall resident and SL5 competitor Rich Kenah is their President and CEO.



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 $2.4 million to local charities, volunteer organizations, town initiatives and Spring Lake Recreation.

Winners of the 2019 event were Brian Quilty in 24:48 and Lindsay Ritchings in 28:30.
