New York > Jack Dowling Half Marathon
East Meadow, NY



Sunday, April 5, 2009

Event Details

You'll get to know your fellow competitors in the Long Island Road Runners Club's Jack Dowling Half Marathon, one of New York's smallest road race events -- the 2007 running of the event saw 34 runners cross the finish line in East Meadow's Eisenhower Park. Fast, flat and a relatively quick race (the last few finishers took just over 2 1/2 hours to complete the race), the course takes runners through the city streets of East Meadow, through and around the park and along the city's neighborhood areas.

Open to runners, walkers and wheelchair participants, the race is considered an excellent tune-up run for the Long Island Marathon & Half Marathon, which takes place in May.

Race Weather & Climate

Long Island weather conditions can still be quite cold in late April, though temperatures are often ideal for running, as April temperatures in the area average between 40°F and 55°F. Rainfall is always possible, as East Meadow averages about 4 inches of precipitation during the month.


$4 for LIRRC members
$7 for non-members


Day-of-race registration only, at the Field House located behind the tennis courts, near parking area #2 in Eisenhower Park.
