Dog Day Road Race 5 Miler

The Dog Day Road Race 5 miler is held on Long Beach Island, NJ in the town of Harvey Cedars. The 5 mile online registration was $28.75 and included a cotton tee shirt. 

If runners are unfamiliar with Long Beach Island it may be difficult to find street parking because many roads leading to the start / finish line were closed. I would suggest arriving early to find adequate parking. At the end of the race traffic made it a challenge to exit, patience is key when traveling to and from this race. 

The starting line offered plenty of port-a-potties for pre-race use. The course was very flat (5 ft elevation change) yet scenic and weaved through the back residential roads of LBI. There were plenty of water stations along the course and post race food included oranges and watermelon.
