Course Improvement

The final 7 miles have been considerably improved as a dedicated bike lane has been constructed in Watervliet along Route 32 and the existing bike path has also been newly repaved for the final few miles from Watervliet to the finish.

Race Transportation and Gear Check

We will be providing bus transportation to the start of each race. We will be offering baggage drops (gear check) at the start of each race.

Aid Stations

There will be cups at the waterstops. (Previously it was uncertain if we would be permitted to do so.)

Packet Pickup

Packet pick up will be on Friday evening and Saturday as detailed here. There will not be an expo but race merchandise will be available at the finish.


To all of our registrants, volunteers, and those who plan to join us this fall: The Mohawk Hudson River Marathon and Hannaford Half Marathon team has been carefully monitoring updates related to mass gatherings and COVID-19 via the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, New York State Department of Health, and the World Health Organization. As of right now, the 2021 Mohawk Hudson River Marathon and Hannaford Half Marathon remains scheduled to be held on for Sunday, October 10th. We will keep our website and social media channels updated on any decisions that are made regarding the race, including what additional precautions will be taken on race day.

We encourage everyone to continue to practice Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance on how to protect yourself and others including regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, avoiding close contact with anyone particularly those showing signs of illness, covering your nose and mouth with a cloth face cover when around others, and clean and disinfect surfaces. Together, we can do our part to keep our friends and neighbors healthy and safe, and allow the front-line workers to continue providing care to those in need.

Please stay healthy and safe, and reach out to us at info@mohawkhudsonmarathon.com with any questions.

Packet pick up is on Saturday 10/12 from 10-5. For more details please visit the expo page.
