Course Info:
All three races begin at Ross Dock Park on the banks of the Hudson River just north of the George Washington Bridge. The half marathon and the 5K are out and back races that follow the Henry Hudson Drive, on of America's oldest scenic roads. The 6k trail run follows the Long Path and Shore Trails after peeling off from Henry Hudson Drive. Trail runners will travel along the top of the Palisades cliffs, before descending to Ross Dock Park to finish. These are challenging races, but rewarding and beautiful.
