Blue Island Oysters Presents the 1st Annual 5K to Protect The Great South Bay. All profits will go to Operation Blue Earth & Save The Great South Bay. Remember: What you put on your lawn – the pesticides and the fertilizer, ends up in our water. Make your lawn eco friendly, go with native plantings — help heal the bay, help our oystermen, and help your community by being a local steward of its environment.

USATF-certified and brand new to south Sayville! Starting and ending at Sayville Marina Park, this course winds through picturesque south Sayville with beautiful views of the Great South Bay.
