1. Corwith Avenue parking lot, behind the Bridgehampton Historical Society/Museum. It is FREE to park here and a quick walk from here to the starting line. See the link below for a map of Bridgehampton Village, with Corwith Avenue and the start line labeled for you.

2. Bridgehampton High School parking lot, located on Montauk Highway, just past Ocean Road. This is an 8-10 minute walk from the starting line. There is a $20 fee to park here and it is limited to 90 spots. Parking permits can be purchased at registration and here. THE PTA IS SPONSORING THE PARKING HERE AND ALL PARKING FEES WILL GO TOWARDS THEIR FUNDRAISING EFFORTS. The lot will not open until 7 am sharp, and anyone parked there before 7 am will be towed by the Southampton Police. There is no parking without a Bridgehampton Half hang tag. See map below for location of the School and the starting line.

3. There is one smaller lot behind the stores at the west end of Bridgehampton village that is accessed by School Street.  Please click on either of the two maps above, locate Bobby Van’s, and note the parking lot behind it.

There will be no parking on Ocean Road or Hildreth Ave.  We need both streets to remain free of cars for emergency vehicles and for you, our runners!  In terms of on-street parking, much of the area is a no-parking zone. If you do find side streets on which to park, please make sure you stay out of driveways, leave mailboxes accessible to mail trucks, and stay far away from fire hydrants. We’d like our neighbors to like us, so please be kind to them. Thank you.

Kit List

Please make sure that your running gear works on all the different running surfaces and different weather conditions.


Spectators welcome!


We at Run the Hamptons know that our volunteers are one of the most important parts of our races! You are what makes these events actual work… without our army of volunteers, we couldn’t get anything done and we couldn’t give back to the communities that we love. Thanks so much for being a part of our events, and know that your time is an incredibly valuable donation to our runners, as well as to our beneficiaries! For those wishing to volunteer please contact the race organizer.


      Can I have a friend pick up my packet?

Yes, provided that person has a copy of your valid ID.

At what time does the race begin?

The half-marathon begins at 9 am sharp and the 5K will begin at 9:15 am.

What should I do if I get injured?

All injuries are different but most importantly, rest is key. If you only missed a few days and a few miles you may be able to just continue with your workout. However, if the injury is a little more serious you may need to cut down the mileage or maybe even reconsider your commitment to the marathon. Pool workouts are a great substitute for running if the injury is not as severe and weight training and yoga also help. Make sure you consult a physician for all injuries

What should I do if I am injured and will not be able to compete?

We regret that entry fees are NON-REFUNDABLE under any circumstances, even if you cancel due to injury, even with a doctor’s note and we cannot transfer your registration to the September Hamptons Marathon & Half.  There are options though. Runners who are entered in the 2019 race but cancel/defer by April 21, 2019, will be eligible for guaranteed discounted entry into the 2020 race.  Click here to defer your registration to 2020. We will also permit official bib transfers. If you would like to transfer your bib to a friend, please email [email protected] before April 21, 2019. In the event that you are not able to participate, and do not notify us of a deferral or transfer by April 21, entry fees for the 2020 race will NOT transfer to the 2020 race or any race thereafter.

How long do I have to complete the Bridgehampton Half?

The course will be open for 3 hours. After 3 hours, runners still on the course will be allowed to finish but there will be no course support available, so plan your hydration accordingly. The finish line will be open for 3 hours.

Can I walk?


How is the race timed?

The Bridgehampton Half-Marathon will be using the gold standard ChronoTrack Systems™ B-Tag™. The B-Tag is a single-use RFID tag that participants have on their race bib to record their time. The B-tag is easy to use and is far lighter and less intrusive than other timing tags and chips, it can be used in all weather conditions, and is disposable after the race. The B-Tag records your time at the start, at the finish line, and at splits during the race.

Can I listen to music?

From the Southampton Town Board: “Southampton rules prohibit personal audio devices with two earpieces to be used during the event”

How many water stations are there on the course?

There are 6 water stations on the course, with both water and Gatorade at each station.

What should I eat before the race?

You should certainly eat before a race, but in terms of what and when, every runner is different. Training is about all aspects of the race- running, of course, but also testing out your clothing, experimenting with your pre-race meal, finding the hydration and nutrition plan that works best for you during the race. Try different meals during practices, typically the longer ones and find out what works best for you.
