SuperAthalon-Logo-290x300

37th Annual SuperAthalon – 2018 Race Tentatively Scheduled for July 2 at 6:30 p.m.

The idea of a SuperAthalon lifeguard competition was born when Buzz Mogck assumed the leadership of the Cape May Beach Patrol in 1981.  Captain Mogck sought to stage a “unique” competition involving South Jersey beach patrols.  Knowing that lifeguards need on the job skills of running, rowing and swimming, Captain Mogck decided to stage an “Iron-Man” competition highlighting those skills.

The race consists of three stages:

Stage 1 – 2.3 mile run along Beach Drive to Poverty Beach

Stage 2 – 1.5 mile row, Poverty Beach to Congress Beach, running across the jetty to Cannone Beach to enter the water for the swim.  All competitors must enter water on Cannone Beach.

Stage 3 – Approx. 1/4 mile swim, Cannone Beach out and around a flag, returning to the beach and running to the finish line on Mogck Beach.
