Note:  At this time, it's impossible to predict what the health conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic will be, or the precautions which might be required of our race and each runner. Whatever precautions that might be put in place or required, it will be impossible for the Spring Lake 5 Mile Run to guarantee that registrants/runners in our 5 mile run will not become exposed to, or infected with, the Coronavirus/COVID-19, whether from other runners, race volunteers, the public along the race route, or race officials.

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.
