The Spring Lake Five Mile Run - May 29, 2021

2021 Spring Lake 5 Update as of January 17, 2021

This notice is to advise all participants on the status of the 2021 Spring Lake 5 race.  Usually at this time, you would be receiving an email from the Spring Lake 5 Mile Run that registration is opening on the First Sunday in February/Super Bowl Sunday.  This year all 2020 registered runners who did not opt out of the 2020 race are already officially registered for the 2021 race.  Any additional registration/entries will be capped at a limited amount based upon any remaining openings for the race.  However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, registration will NOT be opening the first Sunday in February 7th/Super Bowl Sunday.  We will be following events over the next couple of weeks to make a final determination as to whether we will have a race this year.  All details regarding registration, event planning, and any other information will be forthcoming at that time.  We thank you for your patience in this matter and hope that you and your families remain safe and healthy during this difficult time.

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.
