Several thousand kids participated in the Spring Lake 5 Kid’s Races held on Friday, May 23, 2014.
The kids ranging in age from 2 to 14 ran distances from 25 yards to a mile. The runners lined up according to age along Ocean Avenue and ran toward the finish line where they received special finisher’s medals distributed by volunteers at the finish.
After the kids completed the run they were treated to a variety of snacks to include ice cream.
The weather cooperated with sunny skies and moderate temperatures.
The adults will have their chance on Saturday when some 10,000 runners will line up for the start of the Sprig Lake 5.
