Long Island Marathon Weekend!

Friday, April 18, 2014

It began as the "Earth Day Marathon" - a race taking participants on a 26.2 mile trip inside Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, New York.

Now thousands of participants from all over the area take part in Long Island Marathon weekend each May! And there is so much to enjoy: The Nassau County Department of Parks, Recreation & Museums-hosted event features a marathon, half marathon, 10K race, 5K race, 1 mile run and even a Kids Fun Run!

There truly is an event for everyone, and participants of all athletic abilities are invited to participate in any of the Long Island Marathon Weekend events on May 2nd through May 4th, 2014.

If you can't participate, come cheer-on and support your family members, friends and neighbors! Of course, if you're interested in volunteering, there are many ways to get involved.

Find out more about the event and link to participant resources on the RXR Long Island Marathon page!
