Course Info

View Course Map/Elevation

Race along the historic Mohawk and Hudson Rivers utilizing 18 miles of paved bikeways. The USATF certified course starts in Central Park in Schenectady and finishes on the bike path in downtown Albany. The course generally follows the Mohawk River, on paved bicycle trails, then proceeds to the Hudson River, via the historic city of Watervliet. The course passes immediately in front of the Watervliet Arsenal, the nation's only large bore cannon manufacturer. The historic munitions plant opened in 1813, and is still a major producer of munitions. Shortly after passing the Watervliet Arsenal it is back to the bike path for the final 5 miles along the historic Hudson River.

The point-to-point course is primarily flat and fast. The Hannaford Supermarkets Half Marathon travels on the second half of the marathon course. The bike path is not closed to public use and city roads are not closed to vehicular traffic. Runners should use caution.

For your safety and the safety of all other runners, course officials and race volunteers, the use of headphones during the event is strongly discouraged.

Both races are run on certified courses (Marathon: USATF Certificate NY13094JG, Hannaford Supermarkets Half Marathon: USATF Certificate NY13095JG). The marathon is a Boston-qualifier. 

The Marathon is part of the Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club Grand Prix Series.

The course will be open and supported for five and a half hours (from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.).

Water and sports drink will be available approximately every two miles. GU will be available at two locations on the marathon course.

Portable toilets will be at each water stop beginning at mile 4 of the marathon.
