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.
