Walkway Marathon: Full, Half and 5K

Saturday, June 13, 2015
7:15 AM
Marist College's Historic Cornell Boathouse

The Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park—a 19th century railroad bridge transformed into the world’s longest linear park—hosts a weekend full of running memories in New York State’s beautiful Mid-Hudson Valley. Runners of all abilities are invited to take part in one of three flat, fast and scenic races – a marathon, half-marathon, and a 5K—each of which traverses the historic Hudson River via this 1.25-mile pedestrian bridge . Participants will be wowed by tree-lined landscape as they go the distance along the William R. Steinhaus Dutchess Rail Trail, the Hudson Valley Rail Trail in Ulster County, and the riverside campus of Poughkeepsie’s Marist College. But the jaw-dropping views of the majestic Hudson from atop the 212-foot Walkway will make these races truly unforgettable.

Centered around the Walkway Over the Hudson, the world's longest footbridge, this ride is all about discovery. For some, that means taking it easy on one of the shorter routes and simply enjoying the gorgeous scenery of Ulster and Dutchess counties. For others, it means discovering what you're capable of--with more than 7,500 feet of climbing, the 100-mile route is a century worth bragging about.
