Montauk to Amagansett Run

Heading to the Hamptons can get a little monotonous sometimes as there is only so much beaching, lounging, drinking and partying one can do. Ummm, so it makes sense to me to mix it up and throw yourself into a challenge or adventure a little beyond the Hamptons comfort zone. So when my mate Declan invited me out the for the weekend I ensured that I organised ourselves a little challenge.

The plan was to run from Amagansett to Montauk Lighthouse, using the deer trails, railway lines and north side of the Hamptons along Napeague Bay and Hither Hills.

It was a tough, adventurous but enjoyable 34km run in total an we experienced random trails, sub dead ends, sand dunes and searing heat. The swim at the beach later was well deserved.

15kms without a water stop in 100 degree heat, whose idea was this?
