Important Race Day Instructions
There is a cut off time of 1.5 hours, which we will have to strictly enforce in order to comply with our permits. Runners will be allowed to finish, but will be asked to go to the side of the road, and are not guaranteed course support.
There will be volunteers to help direct you to parking on Drexel Drive. Please DO NOT park in the Chase Bank lot on the corner of 5th Avenue. There will be limited parking in the parking lots on Drexel Drive so plan to arrive early or look for parking in the neighborhoods off of 5th Avenue. If you plan on leaving early, please look for alternate parking in the neighborhoods as traffic on Drexel Drive will be limited with runners on the course until 10:00AM.
8:30AM start time means you can catch the LIRR train! There is one train directly from Penn to Brentwood Train Station (2.3 miles away) at 6:12AM arrives at 7:24AM.

The Great South Bay Brewery has an arrangement with LYFT for a discount to get a ride from the Brewery after the party, contact them and use code: GSBbrew.
A Course map is attached below for reference. There will be 3 water stops on the course, one Lei stop and one porta pottie which are indicated on the map.
Don’t forget our Aloha Costume Contest, for Best Male & Female Costumes! Keep in mind that it’s not just grass skirts (that some might feel are inappropriate). Crazy Hawaiian shirts, pineapples, and other creative approaches to the Aloha theme are most welcome!
