Race Information

The Long Island Marathon has evolved from a small race that attracted avid runners more than 40 years ago, to a weekend festival for kids, families, and the entire community. Weekend events include a sports and fitness expo, a full and half marathon, 10K, 5K, and kids 1k races. The race also features the 35.5-mile challenge (run the marathon, 10K and  5K during the weekend) and the 22.4-mile challenge (the half marathon, 10K, and 5K). Food trucks are set up around the Long Island Health & Fitness EXPO and Post Race Festival.
