Shoreline Half Marathon & 5K

Date: July 13, 2019

Length: Half Marathon, 5K, Kids Run Wild Races

Start Time: 7:30am

Location: Hamlin Beach State Park - Hamlin, NY (map)

Enjoy a beach side Half Marathon, 5K and kids races at one of New York's Best State Parks! Flat course along the countryside of Hamlin, starting inside the park and finishing along the beach.

July 7th, 2019 Update:

We wanted to give you a heads up that this weekend we have received word from NYS Parks at Hamlin Beach that part of the course is sadly underwater similar to 2017.  As you may be aware, Lake Ontario has had unprecedented high water levels impacting the entire shoreline on New York State, Hamlin Beach being one of those locations.

With this said, the only impact is the last mile of the 5K and half marathon will need to be adjusted to remain off the path that is currently underwater.  This is for everyone's safety and at the request of the State Park.  If you participated in 2017, the end of the course will be similar to then.

Regardless, we are looking to have a fantastic day with a fast and flat course, post race BBQ and a beach side finish.  Have your family and friends bring beach gear and you can hang out post race for great recovery.  Registration is still open for those you may know who want to join the fun.

More info coming this week about race specifics, but we wanted to get this updated information to you in a timely fashion.

Regards, Boots & Ellen and YellowJacket Racing Crew
