The 4 Mile Warrior Run is a scenic and challenging run. The race encompasses some of the challenging and beautiful sections of the historic Cow Harbor Race, it is USATF sanctioned, and there will be race awards and raffles after the race.
Post Race Festivities, raffles and refreshments will take place at Crab Meadow Beach—the location is great for families and racers alike. There is a park for kids to play, a great beach for swimming, and plenty of room to hang out and enjoy a day on the sound. The race is a great warm up for the challenging Cow Harbor 10k race which takes place weekend after.

Race Route

The run starts at picturesque Crab Meadow Beach Park on Long Island Sound - travels a flat course along Makamah preserve, turns up a hill through a quiet Northport neighborhood, it continues along the rolling bluffs overlooking Northport Harbor, and it finishes fast back down a hill to a flat finish back at Crab Meadow Beach. 4 Mile Warrior Run
