Come out and celebrate the return of our threatened River Herring (alewife) at Peconic Baykeeper’s 2nd Annual “Alewife Run 5K” fun run event! Every year, thousands of alewives migrate through the Peconic Estuary and “run” into freshwater to spawn. Once again, we will be running with them! The race will take place on a scenic course (race on road) that follows part of Southampton’s legendary alewife spawning run to Big Fresh Pond. Race time starts promptly at 9:00 a.m. so please arrive on time to check in, stretch your fins, and race to the finish!  Fish costumes and decor are highly encouraged and race T-shirts are guaranteed to the first 100 registrants.

Registration: $25 advance ($30 Day of Race)

Prizes Categories:

All race proceeds will directly support Peconic Baykeeper, a 501 © (3) not for profit dedicated to protecting and restoring Long Island’s drinkable, swimmable, and fishable waters. For sponsorship opportunities, please contact [email protected]

*In the spirit of creating an eco-friendly event, we encourage participants to bring their own reusable water bottles. As a fun run, a race clock will be provided at the finish but no timing chips will be issued.
