The May Day 5K, a charitable run and walk initiated by Dylan Cashin and Ryleigh O'Donnell, two East Hampton High School students, will return for its second year on Sunday. Participants will set out from Main Beach at 9 a.m. rain or shine. Registration is $30 in advance at or $35 on race day.

May is Mental Health Awaress Month and that was one of the founders' motivating factors. Proceeds this year will go to the Tyler Project, a local nonprofit that raises awareness about mental health and cyberbullying and works to support young people in crisis. 

Last year's inaugural race drew more than 600 runners and walkers. Those already registered can collect their race packets on Saturday between 2 and 6 p.m. at the Main Beach Pavilion. In-person registration on Sunday begins at 7 a.m.
