Race For Charity
This year the Great Cow Harbor 10K Run is proud to support Special Olympics, the Veterans Administration, and our local food pantry. We collected used cell phones that will be processed by Celtek and the proceeds will be donated to the Food Pantry.
The Cow Harbor
Race features express chip timing. Finishing times are available faster than ever
before. For those not familiar with this method of timing, a disposable timing chip is fastened to the bibs of all participants resulting in a smoother finish line with runners exiting the area quickly. There is no need to return the chip to an official. As you cross
the finish line your time will be automatically recorded and placed into
the finish database. Finish times will be displayed at a designated location
in the Northport Village Park.
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 Long Island.
