Event details and schedule

Race For Charity
This year the Great Cow Harbor 10K Run is proud to support Special Olympics, the Veterans Administration, and our local food pantry.

Chip Timing 
The Cow Harbor Race features express chip timing. Finishing times are available faster than ever before. For those not familiar with this method of timing, a disposable timing chip is fastened to the bibs of all participants resulting in a smoother finish line with runners exiting the area quickly. There is no need to return the chip to an official. As you cross the finish line your time will be automatically recorded and placed into the finish database. Finish times will be displayed at a designated location in the Northport Village Park.
