New York > Suffolk County Half Marathon & 5K
Selden, NY • Sunday, March 24, 2013 • Course Map
With its starting and finish lines located just off the Ammerman Campus of Suffolk County Community College in the southwestern section of this Long Island town, the Suffolk County Half Marathon & 5K saw more than 500 runners cross the finish line in both races combined in the spring of 2012, and will celebrate their 17th annual running in 2013.
The out-and-back half-marathon takes a relatively flat route through town along Nicolls Road, starting near the gymnasium on the campus of Suffolk County Community College and proceeding first south along Nicolls to Division Street, where runners make the turn back toward the north.
From there, the race follows Nicolls Road for the remainder of the race, taking runners northward for the next 6 to 7 miles until reaching Mark Tree Road, where they turn again and begin heading south toward the finish line back at the campus.
