Long Path Trail Half Marathon

In the beginning of June there will be a half marathon trail race on the Long Path from Phoenicia to the Woodland Valley Campground. Here is the save the date announcement from the Phoenicia Storehouse. Sounds like a lot of fun for all you runners out there.

June 4th, Save the Date

Phoenicia Ridge to Valley Trail Half Marathon Race

Join us on a half marathon trail race that celebrates the hamlet of Phoenicia and the coolest new trail in the Catskills. The race will start in downtown Phoenicia and head into the woods 1.2 miles later. From there, the Long Path gently ascends Romer Mountain, putting you on a ridge with rolling terrain and plenty of breathtaking scenery, including sweeping views of the Burroughs and Devils Path ranges. The race will end near the Woodland Valley Campground where we'll have a barbecue. This is a perfect first half marathon for newbies and a nice fast course for more experienced runners.

Shuttle service to be provided to get you back to your car from Woodland Valley.

This event is part of the Long Path Race Series, which aims to build awareness for the Long Path and the work of the Trail Conference and its volunteers and to get more people running and hiking on New York's beautiful trails.
