STUFF TO BUY

We encourage your friends and family to come out and cheer you on. There will be limited parking in the area near the Springs School. If you have fans coming to the race, please remind them to park legally and be considerate of the surrounding neighborhood.
There is no parking on School Street or Old Stone Highway and any cars parked there may be relocated.
The best areas for spectators on both courses are:
*the intersection of Town Lane and Abrahams Path (near the 5 mile point)
*the intersection of Town Lane, Stony Hill Road and Deep Lane. This is where the races split and the marathoners pass by twice
*the intersection of Old Stone Highway and Neck Path
*and, of course, at the start and finish.
For the marathon spectators: everywhere out in Promised Land is beautiful, but at the intersection of Cranberry Hole Road and Napeague Meadow fans will get to see you pass by three times
We love to celebrate our accomplishments! The post-race party and awards ceremony will be held starting at 3pm at Stephen Talkhouse, 161 Main Street in Amagansett. Cash bar for those of you who can drink after a marathon!
