Course Info

Both the Marathon and Half Marathon start and finish at the Madison Barracks Polo Fields on Pike Rd next to Lake Ontario (Black River Bay). Both courses are out-and-back routes with the Half runners turning around at mile 6.55. There's only one difference between the out route and the return route: the course goes down Main St during the first mile but then comes back on Washington St during mile 25/12.
