Due to the unprecedented jump in participants, this year will have over 300 competitors!! Read on to see how this impacts your race day.
Parking: Do not park along the street in our neighborhood. We need the street clear for racing! Please park at St. Mary’s of the Lakes Roman Catholic Church at 40 Jackson Rd, Medford, NJ 08055 and then walk (or ride your bike) to the club house.
Drop Off: Don’t want to juggle all your race day supplies in hand from the parking lot? We got you covered. You will be able to drop off gear prior to parking. Drive up like you are heading to the club house and volunteers will be available to help you!
Registration: The table officially opens at 6:30AM. There will be designated areas for people registering on race day and preregistration. Those registering on race day will not be eligible to receive same day swag 🙁 However, t-shirts will be mailed to anyone that does not get swag on race day. Only the first 250 preregistered individuals will receive the full race day swag kit.
Race: The first wave will hit the water at 8:00AM. For safety reasons, all competitors will be assigned to a wave. Pay attention to this and stick to your assigned wave!
BBQ and Awards: While you are working up an appetite our volunteers will be grilling. Refreshments will be served as soon as people start crossing the finish line. Awards are given by age group. This means, for certain categories, unexpected victors. Make sure to stick around for the beach award ceremony to get your prize.
Have fun: This race is 100% staffed by volunteers from the people helping with parking to the race directors. All we want is to help you have fun safe day. We welcome you to bring your families, make signs, dress for the occasion *it is July 4th weekend,* and compete! Whether this is your first race or your 100th, we want everyone to feel welcome.
