The hills of Oyster Bay are calling you! Runners and walkers from the local area and all over Long Island and beyond are invited to come to Oyster Bay on Saturday, October 19 to kick of Oyster Festival weekend with a race.
Local runners have always been prominent in the Town Supervisor’s Run. In the 2012 edition of the Run, the top local finishers included Nicole Henn of Syosset, who scored with third place honors among the women in the 40-44 age group, Kim Solomine of Syosset, scoring 3rd in the women’s 55-59 age group, Thomas Laine of Syosset, 5th place finisher in the 60-64 age group and 85 year old Bert Jablon of Syosset, who took first place in the 85 and over age group.
Participants will once again start on South Street in the heart of downtown Oyster Bay, head up Berry Hill Road, turn down Sandy Hill Road, with a great finish on Main Street and into Townsend Square. This is the seventh year that the
Run will be using this unique course that will show you the scenic beauties of Oyster Bay.
The Run will once again be part of the USATF-LI Grand Prix of Long Island Road Races, a Grand Prix Team event. Every entrant will receive a commemorative hooded sweatshirt, and will be eligible to win an award – with awards going five deep in five year age groups through 80 plus, as well as Athena/Clydesdales, and wheelchair athletes. There will be special awards for the first place male and female residents of the Town of Oyster Bay, and for the youngest and oldest
Town of Oyster Bay residents who complete the 3.107-mile course.
The Club, courtesy of The Runner’s Edge, will also be presenting cash prizes of $250 each to the first male and first female finishers who are bona fide residents of either Nassau County or Suffolk County, cash prizes of $150 each to the second male and second female finishers who are residents and cash prizes of $100 each to the third male and third female finishers who are residents.
