The race was originally organized by the East End Road and Trail Runners Club, RRCA to benefit Katy’s Courage 501(c)3 with net proceeds of this year’s race going toward local scholarships and in support of the newly formed partnership: Katy’s Kids @ CMEE Center for Grieving Children and Their Families with the goal of continuing the program started in the summer of 2015 to offer play and expressive peer support opportunities for East End children and adolescents in collaboration with the Children’s Museum of the East End. The focus of the peer group support will be grief or loss and will utilize modalities such as art, music, poetry, dance/movement and drama in a friendly, familiar and supportive environment.

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.
