Hambletonian Marathon is participating in the Long Path Race Series in 2015!

Long Path Series logo

  • In 2015, the Hambletonian Marathon is pleased to be participating in the Long Path Race Series!
  • There is a $15.00 fee to runners to register for the series, which is nominal and meant mainly to cover our administrative costs (website, scoring, awards, etc.).  Runners will then register for each race separately.
  • There is no requirement to run them all, or even a minimum number of the races.  The scoring is such that the more of them people run, the higher their potential score.
  • For the series, only runners who run the full marathon are eligible.  Relay runners are not qualified.
  • Registration for the series is open for 2015!   Please click on the link to the Long Path website, or contact Todd Jennings at todjen@optonline.net for more information.
  • Here’s to a great year in running!

We will do the first loop PLUS the second loop to the Chester Depot for a total of 21.3 miles for our last long run before the marathon. If you want to stop at the 20 mile mark on Meadow Avenue that is fine, I will pick you up there!

There will be water & sports drink at mile 8 (entrance to the Heritage Trail on loop 1), back at the start area (mile 11.5), and from that point, I will be supporting from my car.

Rides will be provided from the Chester Depot back to Goshen to get your car. A few people are parking in Chester, so if you want to do that so you have your car when you finish, let me know and I will hook you up for a ride back to the start area before you start the run (the meeting time to be in Chester for a ride to the start would be 6:10 am).

Relay runners (or anyone else) if you would like to just do the first loop (11.5 miles) please join us at 6:30 for the start!

Hope to see you there – All paces are welcome!
