The Ellen Hermanson Foundation is proud to announce it will be hosting the 27th Annual Ellen’s Run, a 5K walk / run race on Sunday, August 21, 2022 at 9:00 AM at the Southampton Intermediate School, located at 70 Leland Ln, Southampton, NY 11968. The 5K (3.1 mile) walk / run will be held in-person, as well as virtually. This time-honored summer tradition is named in memory of Ellen Hermanson – who passed away in 1995 after battling breast cancer – a journalist, activist, mother, wife, and sister of foundation co-founders Julie Ratner and the late Emily Levin. This beloved event raises both money and awareness to ensure access to state-of-the art quality breast health care and support services right here on the East End of Long Island. Named the best sporting event in the Hamptons for several years by Dan’s Papers, Ellen’s Run welcomes runners, walkers, women, men, children, and families.
All participation – whether as a runner, a walker, a donor, a sponsor, a volunteer – and all funds raised support critically needed access to breast health care on the East End of Long Island.
All registrants receive a t-shirt, commemorative bib and finisher medal. Registrants are encouraged to register early to get a personalized race number. Registration details are as follows:
5K In-Person Run/Walk ($50 registration fee per person) – Register by July 31 to have your name printed on your bib. Check-in with event staff starting one hour before the race start time.
