Oyster Run On The Horizon


OysterRun_101415ARunners, walkers and wheelchair athletes from all over Long Island and beyond are cordially invited to join in the fun on Saturday, Oct. 17, for the new and improved Oyster Bay Town Supervisor’s 5 Kilometer Run.

This year’s run will feature a new course that heads west from downtown Oyster Bay into the villages of Mill Neck and Upper Brookville before returning to the exciting finish at Townsend Square.

The run will once again be part of the USATF-LI Grand Prix of Long Island Road Races, a Grand Prix Team event, and the USATF-LI 5 Kilometer Championship for 2015, with outstanding refreshments, excellent raffles and awards five deep in five years age groups, as well as Athena, Clydesdale and wheelchair awards.

Top quality Next Level long sleeve thermal shirts will be presented to everyone who registers.

Registration and packet pickup will be at the usual place—in the community center in Townsend Square Parking Lot, just off East Main Street near Oyster Bay-East Norwich High School.

The entry fee is $21 for those who preregister, $18 for preregistered residents of the Town of Oyster Bay and $25 for those who register on the day of the run. There is a 50 percent discount for pre-registered runners under age 16.

Greater Long Island Running Club will once again be offering the Long Island Champions Challenge to the top three male and top three female finishers from Nassau or Suffolk counties. The club will be presenting cash prizes of $250 each to the first male and first female finishers; cash prizes of $150 each to the second male and female finishers; and cash prizes of $100 each to the third male and female finishers.

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Chris Coschignano (who is also a partner in our Presenting Sponsor Sahn, Ward & Coschigano) will be running the 2015 Oyster Bay Town Supervisor’s Run to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities and its efforts to improve the health and well being of children and their families during difficult times.
