Join the Seashore Striders for one of the most popular races at the beach- The Jungle Jim's 5k Splash.   The fourth event in the popular Seashore Strider Championship Series, this year's Jungle Jim's 5k Splash will be held "LIVE".   The Jungle Jim's 5k Splash is a flat & fast course through the Country Club of Rehoboth Beach on the out & back course.   The Seashore Striders will still offer a virtual option for you, however only the LIVE race will qualify for the Summer Championship Series.  The Virtual email should have an attached selfie of yourself as well as a closeup photo of your distance and time.  



The Seashore Striders are rolling out their 2021 race events and continue to work with the Delaware Public Health on following the Covid Guidelines for the State of Delaware (currently at 250 gatherings).  We are assuming that, and are hopeful, that these events will be live events.  The Seashore Striders are still offering runners a chance to join us virtually and being able to continue to support the event.  If any of the Seashore Strider events of 2021 are forced to drop the live option, we will continue offering the virtual event and will add the Seashore Strider Covid Safety Plan to this website and follow our Covid Plan.
