The Hudson Valley Marathon at the Walkway Over the Hudson will return for its second year on May 5, 2024.  After a successful event in 2023, the Hudson Valley Marathon is on track to be Alpha Win’s leading running event.  The course offers an unparalleled view of the Hudson Valley region as runners make their way across the historic Walkway Over the Hudson.  

The race features 1 mile, 5k, 10k, Half Marathon and Marathon distances, making it the perfect event for any athlete.  The Hudson Valley Marathon is a Boston Qualifier, and the Half Marathon and Marathon courses are USATF certified.  The Half Marathon course certification is NY23004DNB, and the Marathon certification is NY23005DNB.  

The Walkway Over the Hudson is an iconic landmark of New York State.  Connecting Ulster and Dutchess counties, athletes get to cross the bridge twice and experience the beauty of Highland and Poughkeepsie, NY.  This is a one-of-a-kind run through the historic Hudson Valley region.
