I hope you’re enjoying this wonderful beginning of summer. If you’re thinking about sponsoring or running in the Sound to Bay 10K and 5K, now is the time to sign up. The 10K course begins at Iron Pier Beach and ends at South Jamesport Beach. There’s one hill in the first half-mile, and then it’s all winding roads through farms and vineyards, and the quaint streets of South Jamesport to the bay. The 5K course begins at Jamesport Town Beach on Great Peconic Bay and winds through the beautiful and historic hamlet of South Jamesport on the way back to the Jamesport Town Beach. Both routes will be lined with friends and neighbors cheering and offering water along the way. Preregistration — postmarked by Aug. 15 — is $25; $30 on the day of the race. T-shirts will be available while supplies last.
