This challenging and beautiful course begins and ends at the Rockwood Hall portion of Rockefeller State Park Preserve overlooking the Hudson River and the Palisades. This is just off Route 9 in Sleepy Hollow, next to Phelps Hospital. Both the half marathon and marathon are single loop courses almost entirely on wide groomed carriage roads, and the marathon visits just about all of the signature aspects of the Park Preserve with a ton of scenic views.
The course CLIMBS A LOT, rocking and rolling past fields, stone walls and bridges, grazing livestock, rivers, forests and lakes. No pavement and no cars on the course! There is an 9 hour time limit for the marathon, which will cap at 500 runners this year. Walkers will start an hour before the runners start this year.
Registration opens Friday, April 1, 2022 at 12:00 AM ET.
There’s something for everyone in the real Sleepy Hollow—farmers markets, live music, street fairs, historic homes, hiking trails, kayaking and boating on the Hudson River. Halloween season brings even more for the whole family—haunted hayrides, blazing pumpkins, costumed 5K run, Halloween parade, and of course, the Headless Horseman!
