Wanted to update everyone on a great event in South Jersey. In it's third year, the Race Director, Midge Kerr puts on an awesome 5K event in Avalon, NJ in the backbays with a mostly tidal assist course. Course starts at 4pm on a Sunday (which will make for little boat traffic) and the afterparty was one of the best I've ever been to! Last year the race was pushed back a few weeks because of the fluke hurricane that hit last August but the owner's of Isabelles in town went all out and had a full spread of salads, sandwiches, desserts, etc...the swim was in honor of her nephew that was killed while serving in the Military (Wounded Warrior Project is the charitable cause involved with the event). Here's some more information on the event:

Cedar Island 5K Swim

Sunday, August 26th, 2012

This 5K Swim starts and finishes at Avalon Yacht Club, and the course is designed to be going with the tide throughout the event. This is a self-timed charity event, and we are providing the venue for a fun, challenging and rewarding swim. Our goal is to raise awareness and provide support to our troops and honor members of our country's military.

In addition to the race, homes along the bay will be competing for the titles of "Best Decorated" and "Most Spirited". The boat support crew will also be collecting donations for our charity partners. Awards will be presented to the top five male and female finishers only.

Proceeds from this year’s event will benefit:
