CAPE MAY, NJ - AUGUST 9: Lifeguards run on the beach as they compete in the Run-Swim-Run event during the United States Lifesaving Association Lifeguard Championships August 9, 2003 in Cape May, New Jersey. Lifeguards from all over the U.S. and Canada compete for the title of National Champion not for prizes, but for the right to say they are the best lifeguards in the country. Lifeguards compete in Surf Swim, Rescue Board Races, Surf Boat Races, Ironman/Ironwomen, and Beach Flag events for three days every August. This year the event was held in Cape May, New Jersey.
