    Beautiful scenery, fast & flat throughout the entire course! First ever half for me & was better than I expected it to be! Race medal was beautiful as well! MORE

    Nice scenic flat course with some water views and houses that most people can’t afford. About a third of the marathon has little shade so on a sunny day, that can be an obstacle.

    A good amount of aid stations both with water and Gatorade. Not a lot of crowd support but this was a lower than usual turnout due to covid and an unusual amount of races during the same time period.

    Not much of an after party as the start and finish is held on school grounds so don’t expect a complimentary beer.

    Shirt and Medal are decent.

    Overall a good event but not one I’m likely to repeat.

    This race is very well organized by professional and friendly people. Parking is pretty easy, traffic on the small streets nearest the race gets very slow so get there early. The course is fairly flat and pretty, later in the day there are some longer stretches with little shade but it’s not terrible. There aren’t too many spectators for this race but the cheer squads that are there are awesome. Local law enforcement is super helpful and energetic for us runners too. Definitely an enjoyable fall race!

    The course is fair with minimal hills. The wind from the coast is a factor, but not a race killer. Small crowd/ field for the full marathon, so very enjoyable. MORE

    This was a wonderful race course. The path was relatively flat. The planners did a very nice job with regard to all components of the race. This was my third half marathon and I would recommend this reckons this as a first half marathon or a subsequent half. I would also consider this as a full marathon race in the future.

    It’s a really nice race with scenic route, flat course, nice swag and after race party, it was really hot that day and there’s not much shade so I suffered the heat and was dehydrated. Would have appreciated more water aid stations. But I recommend it!

    Small race, maybe 200 marathoners. Most of the crowd support is along the half marathon portion of the race. The views are gorgeous, you are in the hamptons and have water views. It was hot as heck though, probably 10 miles with no shade. They ran out of marathon medals which was disappointing. The swag is great though, fleece blanket this year, usually a tote bag, and a t-shirt. If they have leftover shirts from the previous year, then usually give those out too. I would do the half again, but not the full.

    They provide really nice race swag but I hated this course. No road closures or cones to block off a small section for runners which was really dangerous on some portions that were winding roads. I was nearly hit by a car at least twice. Also not ideal race temps this time of year and it is likely to be really warm.
