The Great Cow Harbor 10-Kilometer Run, in Northport, New York, is held at the end of September every year. I have run in this race, and watched it, and last year I was lucky to have been on the press truck in front of the elite runners. These two shots were published in the Northport calendar for 2012.

This race combines small-town ambience with national-class competition. Set in Northport Village, a pre-revolutionary ship-building center, the course offers a series of rolling green hills, a panoramic view of the Long Island Sound, and a down hill finish, as well as a “world-class” post race party.

2010 Participants 5,300 runners

Over 5,000 participants will run through the village streets of Northport, New York. The Great Cow Harbor 10-Kilometer Run is one of the most prestigious foot races in the country and nationally ranked. Runner’s World has named the Cow Harbor Race as one of the top 100 races in the USA. New England Runner places The Great Cow Harbor 10K Run in its Top 100 Races, stating Big race atmosphere in a small town on the Island

they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

and your words
are the most lovely kisses
