The 2nd Annual Longport Take A Breather 5k Run is a race for runners looking for something slightly different from the traditional road race. It is a 5k Out & Back on the beach and occurs when the tide is low, which means you will not be running on soft sand, but on hard packed sand similar to a dirt trail.
CASH PRIZES awarded to the top 3 Male & Female Finishers.
Medals awarded to top Male & Female age group winners.
