Lifeguard races along the Jersey shore have been a staple of the summertime for what seems like forever and tonight's South Jersey Championships should help that tradition continue to grow.

Lite Rock listeners know all about the Lifeguard Races, but if you're new to the event then we highly suggest you check it out. The 74th annual championships beginthis evening at 6:30 at the Decatur Avenue beach in Margate, right in front of Lucy the Elephant.

Bring the family out to see some of the finest guards along the Jersey coast. You'll be able to see veteran guards as well as some young people making names for themselves.
