One thousand seventy finishers enjoyed a fast, flat 10-mile course from Patchogue through Blue Point and Bayport to Sayville and back, followed by a post-race courtesy of Pete Cotter and his team at the Blue Point Brewery in Patchogue.
Ric Diveglio of the Greater Long Island Running Club served as race director. Diveglio and the race committee of Linda Ottaviano, Brendan Barrett, Mike Nolan, Pete Cotter of the Blue Point Brewery, Fred von der Heydt, Nikita Dorcinvil of justfinish.net, and Carl Grossbard made something that was not very easy look as smooth as possible
Organizers are pleased that a significant amount of the proceeds of the run will be turned over to Tom Fricke and his Better Understanding of Life in Africa (BULA) program.
