Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where will the race occur in 2021? Why was it changed?

    In 2021 the Race will take place at Blydenburgh Park across from the Dennison Building in Hauppauge and the distances have been adjusted to a 5K and 15K. ​
    After working with all the county officials, this year, the Run Around the Lake is moved to the Dennison Building in Hauppauge and the distances have been adjusted to a 5K and 15K. ​Additional demands due to COVID have limited the support EMS/FD and SCPD can provide for races. By moving to Blydenburgh Park, we can overcome these limitations and hold our beloved run!
