On Aug. 11, 31-year-old Glen Cove speedster Lauren Jensen scored as the first woman finisher overall in the Sands Point Sprint for the Feinstein Institute, a 5 Kilometer race held on the grounds of the Sands Point Preserve. Jensen finished the run in 21 minutes, 12 seconds, which was four seconds in front of runner-up Bradie Ann Dwyer of Garden City.
A total of 300 runners and walkers successfully completed the run at the Sands Point Preserve, fighting off less-than-ideal hot and muggy conditions. The Sands Point course is not an easy course; the trail in the third mile can be tough to navigate, and the hill leading up from the trail is one of the nastiest found in any Long Island race, according to Mike Polansky of the Greater Long Island Running Club, which hosted the event.
