This year we have lenghtened the Josh Feldt/After the Leaves to a Half Marathon distance.It was a 20k now 21.1km. The course will tranverse the same carriage trails with going around both Lake Minnewaska and Lake Awosting. It will also climb up and over Castle Point/Rock. We are adding a few new touches to meet the "expectations" of a half marathon all for a preregistration fee of $15. 

Some have asked how can we do that. Well, the primary reason for putting on the race is to provide runners with the opportunity to run/race a spectacular course at a great place and have fun with others. It is a race put on by runners for runners. The fund raising is secondary and even with a low entry fee of $15 we can make a nice contribution to the Josh Feldt Memorial Fund at Wallkill High and to the Shawangunk Runners Club.

We will have an early start time for people expecting to take more then 2 hour and 45 minutes to complete the course. The early start time will be 10:30am giving them 3hours and15 minutes to complete the course. If someone needs more time than that they can start even earlier with RD being informed.

Contact Steve Schallenkamp at ssrun54@aol.com if you need more time to complete.
