Hello Brookhaven Trail Half Marathon Registrant,

We regret to inform you that we were just contacted by the New York State Department of Parks who has decided out of an abundance of caution for the safety of all residents, visitors and athletes to close Brookhaven State Park along with others across Long Island this weekend due to the severe wind and weather forecast.

While we are certainly disappointed, the Strong Island Running Club places participant safety as our first priority and to this end we have no choice but to postpone the Brookhaven Trail Half Marathon until Sunday December 3rd. This will provide the New York State Parks Department time to safely secure the park and any dangerous trees / fallen debris ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience for our runners.

See you then,
-The Strong Island Running Club
