About This Activity

Just as the weather starts warming up, before it gets too hot, join us for the 2nd annual Rhinebeck Hudson Valley Marathon! Whether you're looking for a destination race,  a quick getaway from the city, a reason to return, or just a chance to explore Rhinebeck, the Full and Half Marathon promise to be great fun for everyone. The race will feature country roads on tree-lined streets, as well as views of the Hudson River, the Catskill Mountains. Come for the day and race or stay the whole weekend. This year we are excited to announce the Full Marathon will be a Boston Qualifier!

Full and Half Marathon courses are USTAF Certified. Full Marathon is a Boston Qualifier. USTAF Certification #: NY15105JG & NY15106JG. Full Marathon is a Boston Qualifier.

Course Description: This is a beautiful course that features rolling hills and picturesque village and country roads. There are many flat sections, and rolling hills are neither steep nor very long. It's just not completely fat as a pancake! The start and finish line are in the same location. The course begins at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, marked with the letter "A" on the map. From the starting point the loop proceeds clockwise. At point "B" along one of the prettiest stretches of the course runners will turn around and return to the split, where they continue clockwise back to point "A." Half marathoners will proceed towards the finish line inside the fairgrounds, and full marathoners will venture clockwise to complete their second loop.

Elevation Description: Miles 1 to 4.5 are flat, runners begin gliding up and down on 3 percent grades from 4.5 to 6 miles. As you parallel the Hudson, visiting the pretty hamlet of Rhinecliff, you head north from 6 to 9.6 miles, turn around and then head south, passing expansive estates lined with stone walls on the gentlest of grades of -1% to 2%. You will turn left off River Road after 11 miles and head east toward the Village of Rhinebeck on gentle rolling hills averaging less than 2%. In the village on flat roads, half marathoners will end their loop by going left to finish inside the fairgrounds while marathoners will turn right and head out on a repeat adventure of the course.
