SPECTATOR GUIDE

We are SUPER EXCITED for the Catholic Health Suffolk County Marathon. This year's course brings some challenges for spectators and we wanted to share some suggestions on how best 

THE START LINE!
The race starts at 7:30 am at the Babylon Train Station on the corner of Deer Park Ave & Railroad ave. It's a great place to be as you will see your athlete start and if you hang out a little while you will get to see them again as they pass under the start line arch again at around mile #2. 

CATHOLIC HEALTH GOOD SAMARITAN HOSPITAL
Located just before mile #4 at 1000 Montauk Hwy, West Islip. Spectators can cheer their athletes as they run by the hospital and head towards the Robert Moses Causeway. From here spectators can walk to the finish line at Gardiner County Park, which is just under a mile away. 

5k & 10k RACE SPECTATORS
If you want to see your athlete cross the finish line we highly recommend that you go straight to Gardiner County Park they run down the finisher chute.
