The Margate World War II Memorial Lifeguard Races (Margate Memorials) are a favorite among lifeguards, locals and athletes of all ages. Although the races take place at Decatur Avenue and the beach, the spectators span 2 (or more) blocks. It's one of the few events in which you can see beach patrols from Brigantine down to Cape May, in one location. It's a free event where generations of lifeguards and locals gather to support & compete with one another. The races include 1 Mile Doubles Row, Half Mile Swim, & 1,00o Ft Singles Row.
