About the Race:
Named one of the best small town races in the world by Runners World, the Hamptons Marathon is a favorite fall race for runners and has sold out the last seven years. Last year, runners from 35 states and 6 countries participated. Runners of the Hamptons Marathon will start together with those running the Half and they will finish at the same finish line. The races diverge at mile 6.
The courses run through Amagansett, Springs and East Hampton with views of the Atlantic Ocean and Napeague Bay out to the Long Island Sound. The marathon and half marathon course covers some of the most beautiful terrain on Long Island’s East End. Travel through wooded roads and past gorgeous beaches on a course that is generally flat and fast with a few rolling hills.
All half and full marathoners will receive a schwag bag with awesome gifts, an official t-shirt, a personalized race number, and access to post-race food and refreshments at an offsite party.
Cancellation & Transfer Policy
As long as you raise $300 or more, SMF will pay for your registration fee, which is non-refundable and non-transferable. You cannot transfer your bib to someone else.
