Alpha Win is proud to present the all-new Hudson Valley Marathon at the Walkway Over the Hudson! With a breathtaking run over the Hudson River, you’ll get to see beautiful views of the scenic and historic area from the Catskills all the way to the Hudson Highlands. Just a short walk from the Metro North train station, the Hudson Valley Marathon is the perfect weekend getaway, and now a Boston Qualifier! The Half and Full Marathons are now also USATF certified courses. The Half Marathon course certification is NY23004DNB and the Marathon is NY23005DNB. Want to see who you’re competing against?

The Walkway Over the Hudson is the longest elevated pedestrian bridge in the world. Originally the Poughkeepsie-Highland Railroad Bridge, it was rebuilt as the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park and re-opened in October of 2009. Since then, the Walkway has provided a one-of-a-kind way to experience the Hudson Valley!

The Hudson Valley Rail Trail Association is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to creating, maintaining, promoting and improving the Hudson Valley Rail Trail in Highland on behalf of the Town.
