_ The 28th Masser 5 Miler (SS Summer Series #1):

Join the Seashore Striders for one of our longest running events at the shore- the Masser 5 Miler.   Kicking off the popular Seashore Strider Championship Series, this year's Masser 5 miler will be a 'live" event.  The Masser 5 miler is named after one of the founders of the Summer Championship Series, the Late Dr. Lee Masser of Crofton, MD.  The Masser 5 miler is a flat & fast course run mostly on bike trails through the Town of Lewes with little traffic.  The race will start and finish at Cape Henlopen High School in Lewes inside Legends Stadium.  Come celebrate what Doc Masser has done for Running & Racing at the Beach and join the Striders for the Masser 5 miler.
