The 37th Annual 10k takes place on June 18, 2016. The historic event has helped raise near one million dollars for our charities. Every year runners and walkers choose to participate in or donate to our beautiful 10k or 5k races in support of our local charities and our East End Community. The participants, volunteers and sponsors are our heroes and they have a blast doing it! One of the best and most unique things about the Shelter Island 10k is our 5:30pm start time, giving you the whole day to explore the island and gear up for an amazing afternoon run led by legendary runners such as Meb Keflezighi, Joan Benoit Samuelson and Bill Rogers who will help you pace your personal best. Following an amazingily scenic course full of rolling hills and breathtaking water views we invite you to the best after party ever with great food, drink and music where you can rock out your victory dance and celebrate with friends.
Your donations along with our all our registration proceeds go directly to our charities and various needs of the East End communities. We are dedicated to philanthropic contributions to the Shelter Island 10k Community Fund to help with educational services including scholarships, Project Excel, school trips and family services. The East End Hopsice for home health care, with short term hospital stay when needed, for the people of the Hamptons and surrounding Long Island towns. And Timothy Hill Ranch which provides a safe haven for boys ages 10-21 who are in need of a therapeutic environment providing home living with a farm/ranch atmosphere.
