31st Annual Shelter Island 10K
Saturday, June 19th, 2010 5:30 PMThis is a great race to attend with family and friends and make a day of it. The race begins at 5:30 pm so it's customary for many runners to arrive on the island on an early ferry and spend some time relaxing before the gun goes off.
Considered one of the premire races in all of North America, the Shelter Island 10K attracts elite runners from around the world. This year special guest runners will be Olympic Gold Medalist Joan Benoit Samuelson and legendary runner Bill Rodgers.
Jet Blue Airways and Apple Honda are adding to the excitement this year with random drawings at the awards ceremony. Jet Blue will sponsor two round trips on any Jet Blue non-stop flight destination from NY. Apple Honda of Riverhead will sponsor $500 for a registered runner and $500 for a registered walker.
This year, proceeds from the Shelter Island Run will benefit three different local charities. East End Hospice, Timothy Hill Children's Ranch, and the Shelter Island Run Community Fund.
