Maritime Miler Virtual Challenge for the Long Island Maritime Museum

Join us in supporting the Long Island Maritime Museum by participating in our first annual Maritime Miler Virtual Challenge! Choose from one of the following 7 fun challenges, get out into the fresh air, and fundraise to support our museum!  

Run, walk, bike, roller blade, kayak, paddle, or swim (or any combination) anywhere, anytime from May to November 2021 to complete your challenge. Choose a single day event (5K or Half Marathon), commit to a longer challenge, or take on both!

Our virtual challenge is also an educational journey! Earn virtual badges and unlock fun facts about historic places as you hit distance milestones along the way! Do you know how many lighthouses there are in New York State? Are you familiar with the importance of US Life Saving Service stations? Learn all about these crucial facets of maritime history on your virtual journey.

Miles done on workout equipment do count towards your challenge. Make sure to follow current social distancing precautions as you get fit and give back!

Log your miles on Run Signup. Registration includes an official event T-shirt (MUST register by August 30, 2021).  Every completed challenge counts as an entry to a raffle for a free sail aboard Priscilla, our 1888 oyster sloop.

The 2021 Maritime Miler Virtual Challenge proceeds will benefit the Long Island Maritime Museum. The Long Island Maritime Museum is a 501c3 museum located in West Sayville, NY. The Long Island Maritime Museum, located in West Sayville, New York has operated since 1966. It is committed to research, preservation, and interpretation of our region’s rich nautical heritage and the role of Long Island in our nation’s maritime story.  Dedicated staff and volunteers work to deliver exciting new educational programming to the public, lead visitors through new exhibits, refurbish and restore historic wooden vessels, and give visitors an immersive learning experience aboard National Historic Landmark, 1888 oyster sloop, Priscilla.
