2016 Spring Lake 5 - [RESULTS] Race Details

A few months ago we wrote about registration details for the classic Spring Lake 5 race. The event has long since sold out, and now the day of the race is in sight. The website all the race details, but here is the schedule of events, from the Spring Lake 5 website:

[Update, May 28, 11:30 a.m.: See 2016 Spring Lake 5 results]
Friday May 27:
> 6:00 pm Kids Races (Start line Ocean & Atlantic Avenues)
> 10 am to 8 pm PM Packet Pickup for SL5 at the Spring Lake train station.
Saturday May 28:
> 6:30 AM Packet Pickup
> 8:00 AM Roads on race course will be closed to traffic. Get there before 8 if you want to park close to the start.
> 8:30 AM Start of 5 mile race (Start line at Ocean & Sussex Avenues)
> Post-Race Beginning-of-Summer Party!
The official race instruction sheet notes that parking in the race area is limited, and suggests that you arrive early to find a spot. Also, "Streets east of Third Avenue will by closed at 7:30 a.m. to parking." And Ocean Avenue will be completely closed to traffic at the start and finish areas on the morning of the race, so don't even think of driving in those areas.

Entrants can pick up t-shirts today at the Spring Lake train station (Warren Avenue near Fifth Avenue) on Thurs. from 12-2 and 4-7p.m., and Friday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

There are four water stops on the course (on both sides of the street), in addition to the water at the start and finish.

Good luck to all participating in the 40th running of the Spring Lake 5!
