About the Organizer

This race is hosted by Rabble Rise Doughnuts, New Paltz & its owner Rachel Wyman.

Rachel added 'Race Director' to her resume in 2013 when she organized the first annual 5K Doughnut Run in Montclair, NJ. Over the last 10 years, the race has welcomed over 15,000 unique participants and it helped launch the Fueled by Doughnuts Running Club which continues to instill community values through fitness & rewards (doughnuts, of course!) through weekly group runs in Montclair, NJ.

To read more about the Fueled by Doughnuts Running Club check out this article from Runner's World Magazine.

To hear more about Rachel & her races & the club, listen to these interviews with the Ali on the Run Show and Another Mother Runner.

Running & baking goes so well together that Rachel wrote a book about it. You can order a copy of Will Run for Doughnuts with over 65 recipes and dozens of stories, here.

Course Info

The Baker's Dozen Half Marathon will start at the the lower, Awosting Lot located inside Minnewaska State Park. Runners will pass by the majestic Awosting Falls and continue on Trapps Rd to cross the steel bridge before circling Undercliff & Overcliff trails. Upon completing the loop, the course will head back over the steel bridge, reverse back down Trapps Rd, up the switchback by the falls and finish back at the starting point.  There will be one aide station located by the steel bridge on Trapps Rd which will be miles 4 & 9, approximately.

Here is a link to the actual course route. Please be advised, slight adjustments maybe made under the direction of the Minnewaska State Park & Mohonk Preserve as needed for runner safety.

The entire course is on beautifully manicured, wide, carriage roads. These are technically trails (not paved roads) but there are no 'technical trail' or single track portions of the course. It is an excellent introduction to off-road running or a great test of speed & endurance for our trail veterans.
