Maximum Time

As a courtesy to the members of the community and the volunteers, the course will be supported for 6 hours (13:45 minute mile pace for the marathon and a 27:29 minute mile pace for the half marathon). If you plan to finish after this time, we will be waiting for you at the finish line, however, water stops in the last 5 miles of the course may be un-manned so please help yourself, as they will still be set up). Participants still on the course after the time limit are asked to stay to the left side of the road (against traffic).

Highlights

The Heritage Trail is a 11.5-mile linear park from Monroe to Goshen, NY, used by more than 140,000 runners and walkers, roller bladers, cyclists and others every year. The trail follows the old New York & Erie Railroad line, the first to reach Middletown, NY, entering the hamlet on June 1, 1843. This railroad line spurred growth in the Orange County dairy industry as it enabled fast shipment of milk to New York City. Eventually, even commuters used the line to reach New York City.
