The Long Island Running Network

Now you can join Island Running as we build and grow a new running club for all of Long Island.

Island Running promotes and encourages running as a competitive sport, and it improves fitness and health by supporting running and jogging, walking and hiking. In furtherance of our purpose, Island Running promotes and conducts races, hosts group runs, fun runs, training runs and programs on the road and/or track and trail, hosts running and walking events, hosts education lectures about topics of interest for runners, provides awards for club members, hosts social events for members, and all such other things as may be conducive to the encouragement of running. The Club also engages in community activities, to publicize by appropriate means, the benefits of running and walking as a means of physical fitness to improve the health status and environment of people in our community.

Island Running Inc. has been formed to organize the running community locally based in Suffolk County and regionally across Long Island. Our intent is to work with all regional and local running clubs, specialty running stores, and local businesses. Island Running is a member of Road Runners Club of America and is fully insured by that organization.

Our Board members and pending board members are experienced race directors, running specialists, event organizers and local business professionals. Each board member will chair a committee that would be responsible for certain tasks related to managing a running club and its events.

Our first membership race will be held March 20th at Belmont Lake State Park with Spring Training Runs every Sunday in February at Belmont.

This will all take a lot of work and need a lot of help from active members. We will need group leaders and volunteers to work with our board in growing the club and serving Long Island Runners.
