Hamptons Marathon, Inc. was recently ranked among the world's top 10 half-marathons by The Active Times, with the Hamptons Marathon & Half coming in at number seven.

"We could not be prouder that the Hamptons Half marathon was named one of the Top 10 Halfs in the world," expressed Diane Weinberger, Race Director of Hamptons Marathon and Bridgehampton Half. "When we conceived of the race 9 years ago our guiding principle was to create a race that we would love to run, from friendly, personal email support to quality shwag to an excellent race day vibe."

The results were based on runner surveys. Editors found that, "runners absolutely love the Hamptons Half Marathon," and were impressed with the race's leadership saying, "perhaps that most incredible thing about this race... is that the entire effort was created and is led by two determined women, Diane Weinberger and Amanda Moszkowski."

This isn't the first accolade the Hamptons Marathon & Half has received, it was also name a "Race To Run" in Runner's World Magazine. "We don't have a staff, so this truly is a personal effort and we strive to make each race awesome for our loyal fans (now friends) as much as our nervous first timers," noted Weinberger.

The ninth annual Hamptons Marathon & Half will take place on Saturday, September 26th in East Hampton. The race is expected to draw 2,500 runners and it sells out yearly. In 2014, the Hamptons Marathon team created the Bridgehampton Half as a spring option. The organization donates net proceeds from both races to local charities. To date, Hamptons Marathon, Inc. has donated over $500,000 to the East End community.
