Terms and Conditions
Once you have entered a race, your entry fees
are non-exchangeable, non-transferable, and non-refundable,
under any and all circumstances, including, but not limited to,
cancellation of the event or of your participation, or change in
the nature or format of the event. An event may be
cancelled or changed due to severe weather or other factors that
threaten the safety of participants, staff or volunteers, or as
mandated by park officials or otherwise at the discretion of the
LIRRC Race Director.
All LIRRC races are capped at 250
participants. To keep with USATF Registration Rules,
registration will be closed 15 minutes before race time.
That means for Sunday races starting at 9 AM registration will
close at 8:45 AM, and the Wednesday Night Summer Series 5K races
starting at 7 PM registration will close at 6:45 PM.
Registration is in accordance with USATF
registration rules. These registration rules are common at
other races, and are necessary because our races are
predominately day-of-race, and all registrants have to be
entered into the database prior to the race. Please plan
to arrive at the race allowing you sufficient time to register.
Your cooperation is appreciated.

Cell Phones For Soldiers
Throughout our country's
history, there have been selfless people who have stepped up to
answer America's call. Let us not forget our men and women in
uniform, and let us always let them know they are appreciated
for the sacrifices they and their families make for us. What can
we do to show our support of our men and women in uniform? There
are many ways, and the Long Island Road Runners Club has decided
to partner with the "Cell Phones for Soldiers"
program. Each week at our races, a collection box will be
available to collect old cell phones. This is a close-to-home
cause, as former LIRRC President Fred Haslett's son, Sgt. 1st Class Fred
"Rick" Haslett of the NC Army National Guard, was
stationed in southern Baghdad, on his second deployment in support of
Operation Iraqi Freedom. Since his company's Internet
connection was not free, Cell Phones For Soldiers kept SFC.
Haslett and his fellow soldiers supplied with calling cards so
calls home to loved ones were free.
Soldiers can pay as much as $5 per minute to
call loved ones. Our collection helps them stay in touch
with loved ones. Let's do our part.
God Bless our

program is inspiring.
