Follow-up Update on the 2020 Sleepy Hollow Half Marathon

FRIDAY MARCH 13 2PM
Participants in the 2020 Sleepy Hollow Half Marathon please be advised the half marathon has been postponed to October 24, 2020 and will be combined with Sleepy Hollow Halloween 10K. Rivertown Runners and the Village of Sleepy Hollow had been working together to conduct the race using every precaution suggested by the expert authorities. However, given the New York State ban on gatherings of more than 500, implemented to slow down the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we had to postpone the half marathon.

All registrations will be automatically entered into the October 24, 2020 Sleepy Hollow Half Marathon.

This is totally unprecedented territory for all of us and a situation that two months ago we never would have anticipated needing a plan to tackle. We know runners are resilient and understanding, especially when COVID-19 touches everyone’s lives. Yes, it is disappointing but the running community is strong, persevering, and will race again.
