Greater Long Island Running Club
101 Dupont Street, Suite 24
Plainview, NY US 11803

A challenging trail course (technical in parts) on the northern portion of the scenic Long Island Greenbelt Trail, starting and finishing at the GLIRC Clubhouse in Plainview with plentiful, well stocked aid stations.

The charitable beneficiaries  of this event are, as in the past, HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS whose mission is to enhance the quality of life of post 9/11 service members, and the GREENBELT TRAIL CONFERENCE


New This Year - 50k 4-person Team Relay

We love trail running just as much as we love road running, and we want other folks to love it, too! A full 25k or 50k may be daunting for newer trail runners - or even well-seasoned ones! - and this is just the thing to help mitigate that anxiety.

Teams of 4 people - junior, open, masters, senior masters in either men's, women's, or mixed groups will each run very doable (approximately) 7.75 mile legs to cover the entire 50k course. The first runner will start with the 50k gun at 7:30 AM, and run to the Cold Spring Harbor turnaround, where their team member (runner #2) will be waiting to collect their timing chip. That runner will run from Cold Spring Harbor back to the GLIRC Clubhouse where runner #3 will be waiting to collect the timing chip, and that runner will run to Cold Spring Harbor where their team member (Runner #4) will be waiting to collect the chip and run back to the GLIRC Clubhouse for a fabulous finish!

It is suggested that teams discuss having a transportation vehicle at Cold Spring Harbor (1 per team to facilitate parking) to make shuttling back to the finish an easy task. Each team is responsible for arranging their own transportation. 

Awards will be presented to the top 3 teams in each category. 


Custom medals to all finishers of both events in both the live and virtual races (no awards for virtual racers). Top M & F OA  in both the 50K and 25K live events will receive Salomon shoes courtesy of Salomon and Runner’s Edge.

Awards in 25k and 50k races to:

  • 1st male and female OA
  • 1st M & F in the 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60+ age groups. 

Johnny Kenul Memorial Award:

  • 1st finisher in the 50K who is age 60 or over. 


  • 1st M & F finishers in the 25k who are age 17 or younger!
