Cancelled – 2016 Spring Fling – Cancelled


2016 Cape Story by the Sea Spring Fling


*** We regret to inform everyone that the decision has been made to cancel this year’s Spring Fling.  After moving it once and the forecast for Sunday May 29th looking bad due to the path of tropical depression two, we have determined that Nature wins this year.  We hope everyone understands and look forward to trying this again next year.  Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend, may it not be too wet.***

  • Volunteers will man key intersections on Atlantic Avenue from 31st to 89th Street during the race. Specific assignments and instructions will be issued closer to race week.
  • Volunteers will be required from 6am to 3pm, depending on specific location.
  • Volunteers will receive a special T-shirt, box lunch, and water prior to their assignment.
  • Volunteers will be assigned in pairs to allow for rest and bathroom breaks.
