Helderberg to Hudson Half Marathon

Hilton Barn by rail trail 2018-October  v2

The first Helderberg to Hudson Half Marathon is Saturday, April 13. The race is from Voorheesville to the riverfront in the city of Albany. Course blurbage:

The course is point-to-point, starting at Stephen P. Wallace (New Scotland Town) Park and finishing at Jennings Landing on the Hudson River. The first 2 miles are on the streets of Voorheesville. The next 9 miles are on the gently descending newly paved path of the Albany County Rail Trail. The final 2.1 miles follows the route of the soon to be completed rail trail connector to the Hudson River bike path.

The race is organized ARE Event Productions, which is involved with a bunch of other running events around the area.

Registration is open for the half marathon. The base level entry fee is currently $60 through December 31 and includes a t-shirt and post-race meal. (There are also "premium" and "VIP" registration levels that include more amenities.)

Mohawk Hudson River Marathon
While we're on the topic... Next year's Mohawk Hudson River Marathon is October 13 (corrected) The race starts in Schenectady and largely follows the Mohawk-Hudson bike path to Jennings Landing in Albany. (There's also a half marathon that starts in Colonie and finishes in the same spot.)

Registration is open for both the full ($95) and half marathons ($70).


Great use of the path and the planned route downtown.

Whoop! Can't wait!

There is an error: The Mohawk-Hudson River Marathon will be October 13, 2019.

Editors: Corrected. Thank you.
