January 28 Update

It is with sincere disappointment and not a small dose of frustration that we are canceling the May 8 Bridgehampton Half-Marathon + 5K. After consultations with the Town of Southampton and our medical team and, in short, May 8 is just too soon to bring 1,000+ runners together even with the implementation of drastic social distancing protocols. We are not offering a virtual option for the spring but hope to see you to run the Hamptons Marathon & Half in Southampton Village on October 2.

 

Stay safe and happy running.  Diane

January 21 Update

We are working with a team of seasoned race professionals who have successfully navigated hosting races over the past months and are practiced in implementing distancing and COVID safety protocols. We are hopeful that vaccine distribution will be far enough along by May 8 that you will feel confident running the Bridgehampton Half + 5K in person, but we understand that not everyone will be there so we are offering a virtual option as well. You can register now for the in-person event and, if you’re not up for it, switch to the virtual event OR register now to run virtually, and as the race date approaches, you can opt to run with us in Bridgehampton. No stress!

Stay safe and happy running.  Diane

 

October 22nd Update:

We are planning to host the 2021 Bridgehampton Half + 5K in person at the Beebe Windmill on Saturday May 8th. We will be implementing a series of COVID protocols to ensure the safety of our runners, our team and our community. We realize that not everyone is ready to run with a crowd so we are offering a virtual race option as well.  This is our stress free plan: You can register now for the in-person event and, if you’re not up for it, switch to the virtual event OR register now to run virtually, and as May approaches, you can opt to run with us in Bridgehampton. No stress!

Stay safe and happy running.  Diane

April 27th COVID-19 Update:

After careful consideration and in consultation with our medical team, we are switching to a Virtual only 2020 Bridgehampton Half + 5K. This was a difficult decision but we believe this is the only responsible action to take in an effort to keep everyone safe and not take valuable resources away from our local health system by bringing runners to Bridgehampton on June 6th. The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, spectators, and community remains our utmost priority. A virtual race means you can run where you are, when you chose, on the BH Half course, in the park, around your neighborhood, on a treadmill. You can run between May 9th and June 6th and by June 6th record your results here: VIRTUAL RACE RESULTS  We will send you your race shwag. This race is a fundraiser and discounted registration is still open. All proceeds will support Stonybrook Southampton Hospital and the Bridgehampton School and their heroic efforts during these challenging times. Diane

March 20th COVID-19 Update:

We’ve been working for months to produce this event and we also know how much energy you’ve put into training, some for your first half-marathon. We hated the idea of canceling the race so we’ve been working with Southampton Town and consulting with race directors from around the country to find a viable alternative. We are postponing the race one month to Saturday, June 6th pursuant to the current CDC guidelines.  Runners currently registered have two options:

Run the June 6th Bridgehampton Half+5K;

Run a virtual Bridgehampton Half+5K between May 9th and June 6th and receive your shirt, race shwag and medal.

We will email registered runners with updates and post here. Stay safe and run strong. Diane
