The Dirty Sock Run is part of the USATF Long Island Track and Field Cross Country Series and is one of the few 10K races on the Island. Our run is more than just a race. Besides giving runners a chance to compete and have fun, the Run raises desperately needed funds for local food pantries and soup kitchens.
The race follows the Babylon Village trails from Park Avenue up past Southard’s Pond, snakes further north towards Belmont State Park, wraps around Belmont Lake and then weaves back through the picturesque wooded trails to the finish. The course is mostly flat and offers water stops along the way. Finishers are greeted to the roar of cheering fans and to hearing their names called as they cross the finishing mat by nationally recognized race announcer, Terry Bisogno. Runners are provided with a memorial tee shirt, a pair of fresh clean white socks, post-race refreshments and a raffle. This year’s 10th Anniversary Run will also feature the convenience of day before race packet pick-up and a pre-race yoga stretch provided by Fitness Incentive.
