Sayville Running Co. Co-Hosting 10-Mile Local Road Race

The run, from Patchogue to Sayville and back, will benefit Sayville food pantry and BULA effort. Get signed up now.

The third annual Sayville Running Company 10-mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery will be held Saturday, January 19, 2013, starting promptly at 8:30 a.m. at the Blue Point Brewing Company in Patchogue.

Runners of all ages and levels of ability are invited to participate.

The run is being co-hosted by the Blue Point Brewing Company, the Sayville Running Company and the Greater Long Island Running Club.  It is Suffolk County’s only annual 10-mile road race.

The run will start directly in front of the Brewery at 161 River Avenue in Patchogue, and the runners will head west on Middle Road through Blue Point and Bayport into downtown Sayville before heading east again on Middle Road to the exciting finish on Weeks Street in Patchogue, just a short distance from the Brewery. 

The run is a USA Track & Field sanctioned event and the accuracy of the course has been certified by USA Track & Field.

The entire net proceeds of the event will go to benefit BULA (Better Understanding of Life in Africa) to support its efforts to improve the educational opportunities of African children living in poverty. 

Participants are also urged to bring an item of canned or packaged food to the Run to help the Greater Sayville Food Pantry provide food to needy local individuals.

Amenities to the participants will include top quality long sleeve “technical” shirts, and outstanding race refreshments at the post-race party that will include the Blue Point Brewing Company’s finest lagers, pasta provided by BULA, and an outstanding array of baked goods donated by All Round Foods.

Very inconsiderate of the Sayville Running Company. Almost two hours waiting to go to appoinments, work, pick up or bring children to their Saturday morning events. It's nice to have these benifit races, and a local store to support, but how are residents feeling about them now?

I live south of Middle Road and did receive a letter, maybe about a week ago? I didn't save it, so I don't remember the exact details, but I did make note of the closure and mentioned it to my family.

I live south of middle road and received no such letter. Like Tony, Susan, and Laurie I am outraged that all the residents of a 4 mile stretch, south of middle road, were held hostage for 2 hours. We own a business that we were unable to open because we were blocked from crossing the road that our taxes maintain. In the city when a road is being closed, colored signs are posted on every light post 2 days in advance warning everyone. Why did this not happen? What local authority approved this permit- Islip, Brookhaven, or Suffolk? What were the requirments of notification in that permit, if any? Someone dropped the ball somewhere. Enquiring minds would like to know who.

Patchogue Village had the same problem last year when the race closed down River Ave. As a result they (the race organizers) were given very strict restrictions concerning the Patchogue portion of the race.
