Village of Northville, NY on South Main St

The race begins at 9:00AM in the Village of Northville, NY on South Main St, and proceeds west out of the Village and south through the historic Sacandaga Park on Rte 152 with it’s towering pine trees.  The route continues south on Rte 152 until reaching the Bunker Hill Rd.  Runners will travel that entire road until reaching Rte 30, at which point they will turn north on Rte 30 and eventually loop back through Sacandaga Park on Rte 152 and then return to Northville, finishing near the fire station on South Main St.  See the course map for further details. Entrants are encouraged to be able to complete this 13.1 mile event in 3 hours, or less, due to traffic control limitations.  

The terrain is mainly flat, with a few rolling hills and gentle inclines, offering spectacular views of the Great Sacandaga Lake and the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains.

Aid stations will be located approximately every 2 miles, with food and drinks also available near the finish line.  Porta potties will be positioned near the aid stations and start/finish line.  T-shirts will be given to all entrants, and all finishers will receive medals.   Special prizes will be awarded to the top 3 overall finishers for men and women, and other awards will be given to the first 2 finishers in each age category, as well.  Net proceeds will benefit the Northville Firemen’s Association.

The field will be limited to 500 runners, with a minimum age of 14.   We will not be having relays, however, they may be instituted in 2020 if interest warrants.  Due to the majority of the event's expenses coming prior to the actual race, THE ENTRY FEE WILL BE NON-REFUNDABLE.   The race will be held rain or shine, so come properly prepared.  The event will not be canceled unless there are circumstances such as lightning or other immediate life-threatening situations prevalent.  A bag-check service will be provided.  A photo-ID will be needed to get your bib number.
