Volunteers Needed

Island Running is working on many races, and we are looking to form some committee's to help us with our different projects.  We are forming Peconic Trails committee to help us with this and trail projects. We are working with Riverhead Parks and Recreation to form the Riverhead Athlete Club for walkers, runners, hikers and bikers.

Island Running is also active on our trails. Runners and Hikers are invited to join the club and serve on a trails committee. We currently work and hike the Paumanok Path, the Vietnam Veterans Path in Calverton  and we are working on connector trails in the Riverhead and Brookhaven areas.

We need help with managing our races. We need volunteers to help at races. Registration, water stops, course set up and other management volunteers are needed.. We can only do this with your help. Sign up for our Race Volunteers Committee.

Originally, the East End Road and Trail Runners Club was formed in 1994. Became Island Running in 2014. Now in 2020, while continuing to expand, we are also becoming more central and getting back to the trails as Peconic Pathfinders: Creating and maintaining sustainable paths and trails for safe, off road use, for transportation, health and fitness while addressing environmental concerns and safe access to our public lands. Creating fundraising events and networking with other organizations sympathetic to our goals. Visit our Facebook Group:

As in the past, we will continue to be a member of the Road Runners Club of America and we will continue to organize races and group runs, walks and hikes in the Long Island, Tri State area.

We are working with the Riverhead Recreational Athletic Club in forming programs for beginners and seasoned walkers, runners and bikers at the EPCAL Pedestrian Path in Calverton. Visit our Facebook Page at
