This is a point-to-point course that is primarily flat and fast, with a net elevation loss of 370 feet.
The 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, Half Marathon: USATF Certificate NY13095JG).
The marathon is part of the Hudson Mohawk Road Runners Club Grand Prix Series.
The marathon and half marathon are part of the USATF Adirondack Association Grand Prix Road Race Series.
The Marathon is the 2013 USATF Adirondack Association Marathon Championship.
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.
