About This Activity

The 35th Anniversary of The Great Cow Harbor 10K Run will be held on Saturday, September 15th, 2012. Join the over 5,500 participants, who will run through the streets of the quaint, maritime Village of Northport, New York. The Great Cow Harbor 10-Kilometer Run is one of the most prestigious foot races in the country and nationally ranked. Runner's World has named the Cow Harbor Race as one of the top 100 races in the USA. New England Runner awarded The Great Cow Harbor 10K Run its Race of the Year for 2009, stating "Big race atmosphere in a small town on the Island; It's a winner! Who says those "rolling" courses can't be fun?"

The 2K Fun Run / Walk has been a huge success. This event attracts families and participants of all ages. Over 1000 entrants are expected.

Major sponsors include Capital One Bank, New Balance, Michelob Ultra, Poland Spring, Super Runners Shops, News 12, Gatorade, PowerBar, Snyder's of Hanover, Propel, King Kullen, Cabot Creamery, Immaculate Baking, Robert's American Gourmet, Bulova Watches, The Window Shop Jewelers, Vintage Seltzer, UPS, Entenmanns, The Observer, WBAB - 102.3 and the Village of Northport

The 2012 Cow Harbor Race will feature disposalable chip timing. No more chips around your ankle! Finishing times will be available faster than ever before and displayed at a designated location in the Northport Village Park.

The Great Cow Harbor 10K Run and 2K Fun Run / Walk, a nonprofit event, is held in cooperation with a number of community organizations. The proceeds are used to make a substantial contribution to Special Olympics New York, the Veterans Administration Hospital in Northport and the local Food Pantry.

Due to the overwhelming response, the field will be limited to the first 5,500 10K applications that are received. There will be no Friday evening registration (09/14) for the 10K run. The 2K Fun Run / Walk will accept applications at this time. There will be no day of race registration for any event.
