Description

One of the premier Willow Running events is moving to Montour Falls (Watkins Glen), NY for 2022 and will offer various race distances on the beautiful Catherine Valley Trail. The trail is well maintained and easy to navigate with a slight elevation gain heading out and a slight elevation decline heading back to the finish line. Come enjoy the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, take in the fall foliage, enjoy the many wineries and craft beer locations that dominate the region. For 2022 we will offer the traditional Half Marathon & 5K but will also add a 10K and a 20 mile distance event. Choose your distance we'll provide the rest!

HISTORY & THE REGION

Montour Falls is a quaint community located a few minutes drive from the popular destination of Watkins Glen. Shequaga Falls (pronounced She-qua-ga) AKA Montour Falls is a 165-foot tall waterfall located right in the heart of Montour Falls, New York. Shequaga in the Seneca language means "Tumbling Waters".

From the parking area on South Genesee Street, it’s only a couple hundred feet to the best viewing area for the falls as well as the start/finish of the race event.
