Long Island's Premier Competitive Running Event produced by RaceAwesome.com
For more than 4 decades, runners from Long Island as well as from the Tri-State area and all over the country have been participating in the annual Long Island Marathon Weekend. Since the 1970’s when it started with just a marathon, Long Island Marathon Weekend has grown into an event for all skill levels first with the addition of the Half Marathon in the early 80s and later the addition of a 10K race, 5K race, 1 Mile Run and Kids Fun Run. With an event for everyone, all runners are invited to participate in this annual Long Island staple.
The 2019 Long Island Marathon Weekend Events:
Health & Fitness EXPO
1k Kids Fun Run
5K Family Fun Run
Race Day Finish Line Festival
Is public transportation a right? Should it be? For those reliant on public transit, the answer is invariably “yes” to both. For those who lack other means of mobility, transit is a lifeline. It offers access to many of the entitlements we take as essential: food, employment, and democratic public life itself.
Rights in Transit offers a direct challenge to contemporary scholarship on transportation equity. Rather than focusing on civil rights alone, Rights in Transit argues for engaging the more radical notion of the right to the city.
2019 Transit Awareness Day Registration Open!
NYPTA, in partnership with the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, is pleased to once again bring the transit community together in support of a unified message on the importance of a strong state investment in public transportation.
Register for Transit Awareness Day, Tuesday, February 26!
