DISTANCES

Stafford Township is located just minutes from beautiful Long Beach Island. Come down, race, and enjoy a nice weekend on the white sandy beaches of LBI before summer gets into full swing. The Stafford Race course is flat and fast. The swim is in a deep fresh water lake. The bike course will be fast and is freshly paved and smooth (when the bridge construction is complete, we hope to add it back to the bike course). The run takes you along the lake road through the quiet neighborhood of Deer Lake Park. The run is an out and back course so you can keep an eye on and track down your competition. You don't want to miss this event.

The 5k run that will consist of the same 3.1 run course that the multisport athletes are using that winds you through the lovely neighborhood of Deer Lake Park. This race is for all ages and abilities. The proceeds from the 5k will be benefiting David’s Dream and Believe Cancer Foundation.
