Question:
Asked By Christina Smith on February 20, 2010
Subject: Length of Island
How long is the island in total miles wise?
Answers:

Submitted By The Answer Man on February 20, 2010
They say "18 miles", but that is not exact - I believe that it is actually over 18 miles long. I suspect that the length of the main boulevard that you can drive on is 18 miles long, but there is much more island south of mile post zero in Holgate.

Submitted By Bennie Haven on February 20, 2010
Approximate Drivable/Walkable: 18.2mi
From edge to edge of the Island: 20.237

This question reminded that there use to be (?) an 18 Mile Run in the fall. Does it still take place?

Submitted By Commando on February 21, 2010
It's not static. I grew up negotiating Little Egg Inlet and think that I know it like the back of my hand. It's ever-changing, and returning via the Atlantic coming up the coast from the Chesapeake Bay, C&D Canal, Delaware Bay and then the Atlantic...the most challenging part is the entrance to LE Inlet. Erosion is ever apparent, and therefore the length of the Island is ever-changing. We always said it was 18 miles long, and 6 miles at sea.

Submitted By The Answer Man on February 22, 2010
Yes, there still is an 18 mile run in the fall.
