The weather was brisk for the 4th Annual Katy’s Courage 5k run in Sag Harbor last year, lets hope for warmer weather this year since the event will be later in April. I am sure the runners will be energetic, motivated and pumped to take part in the run. The East Hampton/Bridgehampton/Pierson Spring Track Team will be participating in the event again this year.

DIRECTIONS TO THE REGISTRATION AREA:21 Water Street
Coming into Sag Harbor, go down Main Street almost to the end (the water), at the round-about, go around as if you were going to make a u-turn, but instead of a complete u-turn, veer to the right – that’s Water Street. Go past the Post Office, and just beyond the Beacon Restaurant on the right is an open area. That’s where registration will take place.

All proceeds go directly to Katy’ s Courage Fund, set up by Katy’s Family. Katy’s Courage Fund, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to education and support for families and children through scholarships, support for counseling, and pediatric cancer research.
