2020 has been a strange year, and circumstances have forced us to adapt. While it's not feasible or safe to run our usual 5 event series in person this year, we want to maintain the spirit of the event. We'll still be raising funds for 5 great local charities, and we'll be substituting some of our traditional fare for some unconventional fun.
We hope you'll join us for our 3 competitive virtual events, 1 each in the months of June, July and August. They'll include a virtual post race party and awards ceremony, some fun prizes, challenges for participants and will benefit 5 great local organizations in a year where donations are much harder to come by.
June 20-21: Virtual Event #1 - 5km - Keith Nintzel Memorial Run & Sayville Fire Department Run Combined - Including Strava Art competition
July 11-12: Virtual Event #2 - 5km- Community Ambulance & CF Waffle Run Combined - Including costume contest competition
August 8-9: Virtual Event #3 - 4 Miles - Hon. John P. Cohalan Sayville Summerfest Run - Including elevation gain competition
Early registration promotion (Before May 25th, 2020): Register for $50
From May 26th to June 21st: Register for $60
In 2004, Keith Nintzel was involved in a fatal car accident while returning to his senior year at Binghamton University after spending Thanksgiving with his family. In his honor, a scholarship fund was created at Sayville High School for graduating seniors. This race is an attempt to fund this scholarship in future years and create a lasting tribute to Keith’s memory.
