Catharine Valley Half

Sat August 24, 2019 Watkins Glen, NY US 14891 Directions

DUE TO A LOT OF LATE SIGN UP INTEREST PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING  - we prepared for over 20% extra shirts, and finish awards as of 8 days ago. We've received a little more than that in sign ups. While we don't want to turn anyone away, we will NOT have enough finisher awards for any additional runners as of today. We WILL be able to mail you one. 

General Description
The course uses an out-back format along the Catharine Valley Trail. Starting from Watkins Glen HS's athletic stadium (rear of the HS) it runs south, passing through the town of Montour Falls on its way to a turnaround point just shy of Millport. The surface is packed cinder w/ pavement through Montour. It's mostly flat for the opening/closing 3.5 miles w/ a gradual uphill from miles 3.5 to 5 (which you'll get more than paid back through its corresponding down on the return). It's a pretty fast course, good for both first-timers and those looking for a near-PR time.

Crew Directions
Crews wishing to get on the course may have luck in heading west to NY 14. Take a left to head south toward Montour. Take a right on Genesee St just under 2 miles down and look for roadside parking either immediately to see AS1, or head a bit further into Montour to catch runners as they pass the falls. Continue down S Genesee another mile or so to a parking small/limited parking area where runners cross by AS2. Either hang here until they return, or find the CVT crossing in Millport to catch them at the turnaround. (from the CVT crossing you'll have to walk about ¼ mile north on the CVT to the turnaround point).
