“The NEFCU Long Island Marathon is one of the region’s most exciting athletic events, and I am pleased to team up with Corey Roberts of RACE AWESOME and NEFCU to offer even more to our racegoers,” said Nassau County Executive Laura Curran.
“There are few events on this great island that are as iconic and long-standing as the NEFCU Long Island Marathon, which has evolved from a small race that attracted avid runners more than 40 years ago, to a day-long festival for kids, families and the entire community,” said John DeIeso, executive vice president of NEFCU. “The first weekend of May has become synonymous with the Marathon, and we are thrilled to be able to help keep this amazing event running for the enjoyment and betterment of all Long Islanders."
Last year’s race was a great success with over 5,000 registrants. Weekend events now include a sports and fitness expo and half marathon, 10K, 5K, and kids 1k races.
RACE AWESOME and NEFCU promise even more improvements for an even better participant experience.
“We are very proud to offer The NEFCU Long Island Marathon Weekend to our residents and visitors,” said Curran. “This event combines athletics and Long Island pride and we want to continue its rich tradition.”
