Welcome to Rosendale Runs
Town of Rosendale Runs Benefiting the Town of Rosendale Parks and Recreation Department
The Rosendale Runs race will take place on Saturday, October 8, 2016. The Town of Rosendale, in upstate New York, just 90 miles from NYC provides a beautiful venue for its 2nd Half Marathon and its long standing popular 4.4 Plains Run.
Come experience breathtaking scenic views around every bend in the midst of the fall foliage. A mostly flat course, yet with just enough challenge to offer the sense of accomplishment desired.
Run across the trail that made the National Rails to Trails Conservancy’s top ten- list of most “iconic rail trails”. You will cross over the 143- year old historic Rosendale trestle bridge, which extends 900 ft. across the Rondout creek. The race will take you along scenic lakes, into a cave lit only by “Halloween pumpkin candles”. Come experience the dramatic scenery of the enchanting town of Rosendale that helped build the Brooklyn Bridge with its natural limestone cement.
All proceeds (100%) will go the Town of Rosendale Parks and Recreation.
