The Greatest Road Race Melissa Fricke

    A 10 mile race through the Bayport-Blue Point community has become the highlight event of the year for many runners.  The January event sold out in just 80 minutes one afternoon in October.  Over 1700 runners were the lucky bunch to register for this year’s 10 Mile Run to the Brewery leaving hundreds of disappointed runners.  Many passed messages across listservs searching for ways to get in the race and strategizing for registration for the following year.  With the eagerness for the event intense as it was, the fifth year of Sayville Running Company’s 10 Mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery was the most impressive one yet. 
    Runners from all over came out to run on January 17th – a Saturday morning with a brisk 15 degree temperature.  Several dozen runners came right from our own community including Brian Coyle of Bayport who finished 16th overall.  Runners represented NY’s five boroughs and at least ten states including: Illinois, Virginia, Michigan, Connecticut, and Florida.  Even Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone came out to run!
    As evidenced by its sell out speed, the race has become the most anticipated one on the island, and it’s no wonder why.  The event is artfully planned and executed by the best of the best in the business - Greater Long Island Running Club, Sayville Running Company, and Just Finish.  Great support and input from Suffolk County’s Fifth Precinct and the Village of Patchogue keep runners safe and the event smoothly run.  Come race day, over 100 volunteers ensure that runners are informed, hydrated, well-fed, and happy. 
    The event itself offers a long, professionally timed race, at a time of year where training is tough but necessary to stay on track for the upcoming spring events.  The course is an admired scenic route through the quaint towns of Blue Point and Bayport, where runners gawk at the beautiful homes and the community’s natural beauty. 
    Better yet, the race offers the very best after party to ever grace a road race.  The Blue Point Brewery generously hosted the runners offering five delicious beer options at each of the two enormous heated tents in the brewery’s back lots.  A band played all morning –Patchogue’s own, SoundSwell, kept the crowd lively with their fusion of rock, funk, jazz and blues.  With the flow of beer, rhythmic music, and abundance of food, the runners were left satiated and light-hearted.  The party carried on well into the tasting room hours with more bands, more beer, and the welcoming of the general public. 
    While the course is beautiful and the after party unbeatable, the event is also purposeful. True to the spirit of this community, the event is a charitable one. Local nonprofits supported by the event include: Patchogue Medford Youth and Community Services, St. Francis and Patchogue food pantries, and BULA.  As the founder of one of the beneficiary organizations, I extend my deepest gratitude to the people, organizations, and institutions who make this event possible – and most of all to the runners who brave the cold to come out and have fun with us every January. 
    Many of you may find the idea of this race to be a bit bonkers, but to me, to the hard working race organizers, and to the impassioned runner, it is pure magic.
