Trail and Road Half Marathon

Looking for a change of pace? The Sleepy Hollow Half Marathon has the best of fun and scenery.

The Sleepy Hollow Half-Marathon features approximately 5 miles of carriage roads and groomed trails (meaning crushed gravel and dirt) in the Rockefeller State Park Preserve. The 13.1-mile USATF-certified course also travels along the Old Croton Aqueduct and, as in past years, winds through picturesque neighborhoods in Sleepy Hollow.

The idyllic landscape and scenic views of the Rockefeller State Park Preserve now make up part of the course due to construction and development along sections of the Sleepy Hollow waterfront. We are thrilled to make it possible for you to race on the same spectacular carriage roads and trails that serve as a training ground for many of the areas top runners.

And if the magnificent Hudson River views on our new course don’t take your breath away, the hills on our course will!
