Set in the Catskill Mountains, in the charming hamlet of Livingston Manor, NY, these courses will be fast and full of beautiful, autumn scenery!  We are super excited to have Catskill Brewery as the featured craft brewery for this event!!  This is one of our favorite breweries and they create delicious craft beer of many varieties.  Catskill Brewery will give each participant, of legal drinking age, a complimentary Craft Beer!  
 
The Half Marathon course is fast (overall downhill course -- see map)!!  210 PARTICIPANT LIMIT FOR THE HALF MARATHON.  The course is one of the most scenic, point-to-point routes in the region, starting in Mongaup Pond Campground, following Mongaup Creek, the famous Willowemoc Creek, and finishing at Catskill Brewery.  Runners should get the full experience of autumn colors in the Catskills!
 
The 5K Run/Walk is a loop which starts by Catskill Brewery, crosses the historic Covered Bridge, follows the Willowemoc Creek through Livingston Manor, then down Main Street, with all the shops/restaurants, and back to the finish at Catskill Brewery.
