2010 Spring Lake 5 - General Registration Opens Feb. 12th

NOTE: Entry to 2010 Spring Lake 5 is now filled, but you can still get into the race by signing up to raise money through one of the race's charity partners.
- - - - - 
Most of the spots in the 2010 Spring Lake 5 mile race have been filled, but the remaining slots will be open starting on Friday morning, Feb. 12th at 5:00 a.m. - yes, that's what the Spring Lake 5 Web site says. Early registration opened to those who had run the race before, and the Web site says that that quota (7,000 participants) has been reached. 

Another 2,500 participants will be added through the general registration that beings Feb. 12th. So what about the extra 500 slots to make up the 10,000-runner field? I'm guessing those are reserved for people who sign up to run the Spring Lake 5 to benefit a charity.

As always, the Spring Lake 5 will take place the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, which this year is May 29th. The race starts at 8:30 a.m. at Ocean and Sussex Avenues in Spring Lake, New Jersey.
