Overview

Race along the historic Mohawk and Hudson Rivers utilizing 18 miles of paved bikeways. The USATF certified course starts in Central Park in Schenectady and finishes on the bike path in downtown Albany. The course generally follows the Mohawk River, on paved bicycle trails, then proceeds to the Hudson River, via the historic city of Watervliet. The course passes immediately in front of the Watervliet Arsenal, the nation's only large bore cannon manufacturer. The historic munitions plant opened in 1813, and is still a major producer of munitions. Shortly after passing the Watervliet Arsenal it is back to the bike path for the final 5 miles along the historic Hudson River. The point-to-point course is primarily flat and fast. The Hannaford Supermarkets Half Marathon travels on the second half of the marathon course. The bike path is not closed to public use and city roads are not closed to vehicular traffic. Runners should use caution.
