The 27th annual Ellen’s Run happens on Sunday, August 21 from 9am to 12pm. It’s a hybrid event this year – in person on August 21 – a 5K Run/Walk/Virtual event, and takes place rain or shine. The starting point is the Southampton Intermediate School, 70 Leland Lane, Southampton, at 9am.
New this year is a Kiddie Dash at 8:30 am! Bring the young ones for a short dash to the finish line — all will get ribbons!
Online registration for the in-person event is open until race time on race day. Registrants will receive a bib number. If you register more than 24 hours in advance your bib number will be texted or emailed to you at least 2 hours before bib pickup.
If you register within 24 hours of bib pickup, please bring your confirmation email, either on your phone or printed, and a bib will be assigned to you.
