Half Marathon Course & Elevation Description: This is a beautiful and challenging course with the start and finish line at the same location inside the Fairgrounds. The course features flat straightaways and rolling hills along picturesque village and country roads. From the starting point labeled “A” the loop proceeds clockwise. At point “B” along one of the prettiest stretches of the course runners will turn around and return to the split, where they continue clockwise back to point “A.” Half marathoners will proceed towards the finish line inside the fairgrounds.
Miles 1 to 4.5 are flat, runners begin gliding up and down on 3 percent grades from 4.5 to 6 miles. As you parallel the Hudson, visiting the pretty hamlet of Rhinecliff, you head north from 6 to 9.6 miles, turn around and then head south, passing expansive estates lined with stone walls on the gentlest of grades of -1% to 2%. You will turn left off River Road after 11 miles and head east toward the Village of Rhinebeck on gently rolling hills averaging less than 2%.
