Welcome to the 41st Annual
Cape May Point 5 mile Run
In 1979, a group of interested Cape May Point residents began a discussion of ways to raise funds to support their local fire company. The result was the first running of the Cape May Point Five Mile Run for the benefit of the Cape May Point Volunteer Fire Company. Every year since, on the third Saturday in June, hundreds of runners, spectators and local citizens gather in support of this event. It is, by far, the largest annual event in our tiny Borough, and the Coast Guard Training Center at Cape May regularly sends a company of recruits to participate, adding to the spectacle. more info
