"East Hampton Trails Preservation Society operated on a very tight budget, which includes significant costs for maintaining our own trails. Paddlers for Humanity's contribution will go a long way toward fulfilling our mission," said Jim Zajac, President of East Hampton Trails Preservation Society (EHTPS).

Paddlers for Humanity (P4H) is raising funds for the Hamptons organization, as well as for Long Island Communities of Practice (LICOP), during their Sixth Annual Hither Hills Off-Road Half Marathon on Sunday, May 4.

The race will begin at Eddie Ecker Park in Montauk at 9 a.m. Participants can enter by themselves, or as a two-person team. The first seven miles follow a grueling path through Hither Hills, but the last six miles are less strenuous with a gentle and rolling course. Two-person teams hand off 6.2 miles into the race at the West Hither Hills Overlook.

"Simply put, without the support of Paddlers for Humanity (P4H), LICOP would not be able to provide our summer surf camps; sincere thanks," noted Helene Fallon of LICOP.

Check-in starts at 8 a.m. and the race begins at 9 a.m. All runners must register and the race is limited to 75 participants. The online registration deadline is Saturday, May 3. Pre-registration is $65 per person or $100 per two-person relay team. Day-of event entry fee is $85 per person or $150 per two-person relay team.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didnít change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
