Participant Limit:  350 Total (230 for Half, 120 for 5K)

Set in the Catskill Mountains, in the charming hamlet of Livingston Manor, NY, these courses are fast and full of beautiful, autumn scenery!  Catskill Brewery is the featured crafty brewery for the event!  This is one of our favorite breweries and they create some really delicious brews.  Catskill Brewery will give each participant, of legal drinking age, a free craft beer! 

The Half Marathon course is fast (overall downhill course — see map)!  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 is a run/walk loop course which starts by Catskill Brewery, crosses the historic Covered Bridge, follow the Willowemoc Creek through Livingston Manor, then down Main Street, with all the shops/restaurants, before finishing at Catskill Brewery.  

Finish Line festivities include food for participants, music, raffle prizes, lawn games, and of course, craft beer from Catskill Brewery! 

Bring your family and friends — spectators are highly encouraged and there is A LOT to do in the area!  Come stay the weekend in Livingston Manor!
