Top Ten Marathon

Course Information:
This is a point-to-point course that is primarily flat and fast, with a net elevation loss of 370 feet.
The Hannaford Supermarkets Half Marathon uses the second half of the marathon course. Approximately two-thirds of the marathon course is on paved bike path, one-third on city streets. The bike path is not closed to public use and city streets are not closed to vehicular traffic. Participants are required to run or walk on the left shoulder of the road when using city streets, unless otherwise instructed by race or police officials. Please use caution.

Both courses are certified by USATF. The Mohawk Hudson River Marathon can be used as a Boston Qualifiying race. (Marathon: USATF Certificate NY13094JG, Hannaford Supermarkets Half Marathon: USATF Certificate NY13095JG).

The marathon is part of the Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club Grand Prix Series.
The Marathon is the USATF Adirondack Marathon Championship.

Bus Transportation:
Complimentary bus transportation will be available to all participants from downtown Albany (near the host hotel and finish line area) to the start of each race. Please reserve a spot on the bus when registering. To those participants needing transportation from the finish area back to the start line: the bus to the start of the Hannaford Supermarkets Half Marathon leaves at 12:30 p.m. and the bus to the start of the marathon leaves at 2:30 p.m. No reservation is necessary.

Parking is extremely limited at Colonie Town Park. Particpants are encouraged to use the bus from downtown Albany, if possible.

Baggage Check:
Participants can check a bag at the start of each race, which will be transported to the finish area. If you plan to check a bag, a clear plastic bag must be used. Any other type of bag or backpack will not be accepted – no exceptions. Please make sure that your bib number, name and a contact number is visible on the bag. A tag for your bag is provided on your bib.

All registered participants in the marathon will receive a gender-specific adidas technical race shirt.
