2017 Sayville Running Company 10 Mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery Registration Opening Announcement


The 7th Annual edition of the Sayville Running Company 10 Mile Run to the Blue Point Brewery will be held on Saturday, January 14, 2017.

 Online registration will open on Wednesday, October 19th at 7:00 PM.  After 600 people have registered on the evening of the 19th, registration will be suspended and then resumed on Saturday, October 22nd at 12:00 Noon, at which time 600 additional registrations will be accepted. 

 We have moved to a new race registration provider, RunSignUp, who is quite experienced in handling popular registrations such as this one, and we are confident that last year's glitches will not recur! For faster registration, it is recommended that you join RunSignUp prior to registration. You do not need to be a member of GLIRC to join RunSignUp. If you are a GLIRC member you will get the discount at checkout, based on the information in our membership. Go to www.runsignup.com. If you are not yet a GLIRC member, click here to join.

 Every GLIRC member who has volunteered at six events between March 1, 2016 and October 16, 2016 will be entitled to a guaranteed registration.  If you are one of those dedicated volunteers, you will be formally notified by email no later than October 18th; if you are notified that you are entitled to a guaranteed registration, please do NOT register now online.  Recipients will receive instructions from GLIRC on how to register for the race after October 22nd.

 If you deferred your 2016 registration to this year, do NOT register now online. You will be notified by email that you are one of these recipients and that you have a guaranteed registration. Recipients have received instructions from GLIRC on how to register for the race.

 We plan to host three Brewery Training Runs in advance of the main event on January 14th. An additional 10 registration guarantees will be raffled off at each of the three Brewery Training Runs; these are not free entries, but only guaranteed.  They are transferrable by the winners.  Winners will receive instructions from GLIRC on how to register for the race.  The three Training Runs will be held on Thursday evening, November 17th, Thursday evening, December 8th, and Thursday evening, January 5th.

  REMEMBER: Entries will only be accepted from runners who will be at least 21 years old by January 14, 2017.

 NOTE: If you have entered the race, and it later turns out that you cannot run for any reason, your entry can be transferred to another runner by payment of a $25 transfer fee at any time up until January 7, 2017.

  If you have any questions, please call the GLIRC office at 516-349-7646.


Thanks to our new 21st Century relationship with our friends at HAKU, we have been able to streamline our system of recording new and renewed memberships and of making things as simple as possible for our members.

Once you are in the system as a GLIRC Member, you can utilize a “one click” approach to registering for GLIRC events.  That “one click” will automatically transfer all needed information into the system for that race, and you only need to update the information if there have been any changes to your information.

Once you are in the system as a GLIRC Member, you can also register for GLIRC events online using your Volunteer Points.

If your GLIRC Membership is up in March, you will continue to receive several reminders as to when your membership renewal is due, but they will all be transmitted by email if we have your email address. 

Please make sure that we have a current email address for you.  If there is a change in your email address or any other pertinent personal information, please let us know about it.  Ultimately you will be able to access your GLIRC Membership Account to make any changes in your information that are needed.

There are approximately forty people on our Membership books who we have no email address for.  We recognize that there are still a few people who do not use electronic mail, and we will accommodate them by continuing to use “snail mail” to entice them to renew their membership.  However, we encourage everyone who does have a current, active email address to let us know about it.    

There will be no processing fee, administrative charge or other extra charge for those renewing online.  The Club will absorb all administrative costs of online registration; your online dues payment will total $30 for individuals and $35 for families.  We will, however, be imposing a $5 administrative charge for those who choose to continue to renew with “hard copy” membership applications.

If you have any questions about the new system, please call the GLIRC office at (516) 349-7646.
