Looking for a challenging and fun way to SEE and cross Long Island? Spend the day with friends, cheering each other on from one leg to the next. Bring plenty of water, snacks, and goodies. Costumes, signs, and decor welcome.
The race starts at Jones Beach, on the South Shore, and ends at the picturesque town of Oyster Bay. Teams of eight are formed. Divisions for Men, Women, Mixed, Masters, Open. Names and themes can be selected. The team with the most "Spirit" will also be honored.
Each member usually runs one leg of the eight leg race, while the rest of the team follows along in the car cheering, supporting, and directing along the route.
And they're off! A timed event with chip and bib numbers, stage finish lines, and the grand finale.
Winding roads, and rolling hills. Preserves and sun-scourged pavements. Congested and tree-lined streets. Zig-zagging through Long Island towns including Wantagh, Seaford, Massapequa, Bethpage, Huntington, Cold Spring Harbor, Muttontown, and Oyster Bay.
It all culminates at the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park. A large celebration and award ceremony to follow, along with music and dancing.
A fun, community day with friends, family, and teammates and at the same time enjoying the quaint scenic towns that Long Island has to offer!
