The Port Washington Winter Run is a 5-Mile Run starting and finishing in North Hempstead Beach Park, Port Washington. The 5-Mile loop starts in the park and heads north and then south along West Shore Road, ending back in the Park. This race is open to runners ages 13 and older who can run 5 miles in 75 minutes or less. All runners will receive a long-sleeve performance shirt. Finishers receive a medal. At race end, awards based on gun time are given to the top three athletes overall, male/female and the top three athletes, male/female in each 5-year age group.
There will be a Post Race Party in a heated tent with live music and lunch. Beer is being donated and served by the Greenport Harbor Brewing Company, a craft brewer, who will be producing a small special batch JUST for our race.
Runners under the age of 16 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian or by an adult person authorized by the child's parent or guardian in order to enter the tent. Runners age 21 and older will receive a bracelet, which will be ID for purposes of enjoying the beer.
