The Half Marathon course is fast (overall downhill course -- see map)!!  400 PARTICIPANT LIMIT FOR THE HALF MARATHON.  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!
