Race registration and stretching will begin at Brecknock Hall (1 Brecknock Road, Greenport), at 8 a.m. The race and walk are set to start at 10 a.m., followed by the awards ceremonies at 11:15 a.m., and a barbeque after.

This year, the "Older American Champion Award" will be presented to Father Thomas Murray, pastor of Greenport's St. Agnes Church since 2002. The annual award honors a Long Island or local individual for his or her years of service and continued commitment to older Americans, recognizing the difference that person makes in older Americans' quality of life.

More than $160,000 has been raised for the Greenport Fire Department since the Peconic Landing May Mile & 5K Race began in 2005. Thanks to more than 70 monetary, in-kind and raffle sponsors, over 500 participants and the hard work of several volunteers, last year's May Mile & 5K alone raised $24,250, which was used to purchase necessary safety equipment.

The Peconic Landing is located at 1500 Brecknock Road in Greenport. To pre-register for the race, go to www.peconiclanding.com.
