We’re really excited to bring you another year, and new course configuration of the Gorges Ithaca Half Marathon. For years we’ve wanted to use the Black Diamond Trail as a whole. This will be the year, with runners bused (or getting dropped off) at a start at the awe-inspiring Taughannock Falls State Park. Runners will run the full length of the beautiful Black Diamond Rail Trail, a hard-packed gravel path descending 700’ over 8 miles back to Ithaca with micro-gorges and waterfalls bursting along the way. After the Black Diamond Trail descent, runners will cross the Inlet and run on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail to Stewart Park at the base of Cayuga Lake. From there it will be a fast final mile through the Fall Creek Neighborhood to a finish at DeWitt Park.
Note: Course configuration may change influenced by factors including a current nationwide shortage of bus-drivers. In the case we can’t secure enough drivers, we may shift to an out-back course such as that used in 2021, or a varied loop around Ithaca.
