‘Survivor’ organizers eye May date for next run

BARBARAELLEN KOCH FILE PHOTO | Runners navigate the muddy Survival Race course last year.

The Riverhead Town Board on Thursday met with organizers of the “Survivor Race” 5K who are hoping to hold an event in May similar to one they ran last September in Riverhead.

The event is planned for property off Sound Avenue this spring, with another in September

But Supervisor Sean Walter warned that the organizers should have approached the Town Board months ago about the event, which could draw up to 5,000 people. Events of that size require a county mass gathering permit, which isn’t that easy to come by, Mr. Walter explained.

Town Board members suggested limiting the size of the event.

Tim Gannon reported live from the meeting.
