1 Heckscher State Parkway, Field 4, East Islip, NY 11730

Certified 5 kilometer course on the paths of Heckscher State Park, East Islip.  Enjoy stunning views of the Great South Bay with Fire Island as the backdrop.

The race had to be moved to Heckscher State Park this year due to construction taking place at Caumsett State Park. 

We have been assured by the Chair of USATF’s Mountain, Ultra & Trail Committee that the change of venue will in no way affect the event’s status as the USATF National 50 Kilometer Road Championship for 2020.

For a full explanation of the change in venue, please see the section titled "Caumsett at Heckscher."

Your 26.2 mile split in the 50K will be a 2021 Boston Qualifier, but ONLY if you complete the full 50K distance.

Sanctioned by USATF-Long Island Association
