October 15, 2017. Reds, oranges, golds, and some greens. Beautiful fall colors to motivate you through the scenic course of the Fall Foliage Half Marathon in Rhinebeck, New York. This half marathon has a later start (10:20am) to accommodate folks from nearby NYC and Albany and takes you through the quaint historic downtown streets as you run along the banks of the Hudson River. There are plenty of hills with a killer one at the 13 mile mark, so save some energy for the finish! The race is capped at 1200 runner, so be sure to sign up in advance to get a spot.
