Mohawk Hudson River Marathon & Half Marathon

The Mohawk Hudson River Marathon and Half Marathon are scheduled for October 9, 2022.

Race along the historic Mohawk and Hudson Rivers utilizing 18 miles of paved bikeways. The USATF certified course starts near the Niskayuna Community Center 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.

This is a point-to-point course. The Mohawk Hudson River Half Marathon uses the second half of the marathon course. Approximately two-thirds of the marathon course is on paved bike path, one-third on city streets. The bike path is not closed to public use and city streets are not closed to vehicular traffic. Participants are required to run or walk on the left shoulder of the road when using city streets, unless otherwise instructed by race or police officials. Please use caution. Both courses cross a freight railroad line. Trains are not on a schedule and their frequency cannot be predicted, timing mats are provided to capture any delay by the train.
