This year the Joe Keany 5K and 1 mile Fun Run takes place on Sunday June 4, 2017 with a gun time of 8:15am for the mile and 9:00am for the 5K run. Our runners race on our USTAF course from the North Country Road Middle School, through historic Miller Place, wind down past beautiful Mount Sinai Harbor, up the steep Cedar Drive hill and finish back at the Middle School. We are anticipating over 450 runners for this exciting annual event!
Joe Keany was a 1986 graduate of Miller Place who distinguished himself in both cross country and track. When he was a child, his mother was told by doctors that he would never be an athlete because he had problems with his feet. Well, that didn't stop Joe, during his high school years he discovered running, and it became the passion of his life. He ran cross country, indoor and outdoor Track. He became captain and received All County and All Conference honors. He went on to run competitively at Cortland State University. He was regarded by his competitors as a tough competitor who would never quit. His teammates had said he was an excellent training partner and a compassionate friend. He passed away suddenly at the age of 28 from a brain aneurysm. Joe would be overjoyed to see all the runners and walkers of all ages and abilities take the time on a June morning and celebrate fitness, friendship, competition, family and friends.
