This weekend there were no fewer than six road races held across Nassau-Suffolk: …. Long Island has more than 30 events in the next eight weeks sure to test your fitness and help put a spring in your step. Among them are these five, ... established "must-run" events ... All are interesting races in interesting places -- also good for mere mortals interested in being part of the volunteer crew or cheering from the sidelines.

Doug Wood Memorial 5K Cross Country Run, Northport


The namesake for this race was a longtime member of the Northport Running Club. He was known to love the woods -- specifically, running along the trails of the 160-acre Makamah Nature Preserve, near Crab Meadow Beach, where the race is now held. (Start and finish is at the Norwood Avenue Elementary School.) "It is challenging, but it's so much fun," says Northport's Kathryn Martin, 59, a national age-group champion who has done this race several times. "You're just running through the woods."
