The Lower Township Police would like residents in the Villas, Town Bank, and North Cape May neighborhoods to be aware of detours in and about the Town Bank and North Cape May area for the Coombs Douglass Run, which will begin Saturday, August 13, 2022, at 8:30 a.m.

Town Bank Road, Clubhouse Road, Miramar Avenue, Beach Drive, Shore Drive, and Douglass Park will all be closed or detoured. Due to the number of runners and road closures, motorists are asked to avoid this area from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. as there will be delays due to most of the course being closed to traffic. Douglass Park will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday, August 12th, until the end of the run on Saturday, August 13th.

The event will consist of a two-mile and five-mile run. The race's starting point will be in front of the Town Bank Fire Hall. Most of the run will occur on Clubhouse Drive, Shore Drive, and Beach Drive in North Cape May.

Any runners wishing to participate can contact the Lower Township Department of Parks and Recreation at 609-886-7880.
