Destination New York 2014

Destination New York 2014

Here is a list of Marathons and Half Marathons for New York State.

If you are a race director and I either missed your race or have some of my information wrong, please contact me. I will be happy to update my list with the latest information.

New York races, destination races

NYCRUNS has an extensive calendar of all races in New York and many races in neighboring states. If you are looking for a Marathon, Half, 10K or 5K in New York State, their listing is extensive. They also list various trail runs and races of other distances.

The New York City Marathon is a World Class marathon. Much like Boston, it is difficult to get a number for New York. New York State offers a number of other marathon options that can give you the “Big City” feel or the “Small Town” Charm. There is truly something for every taste in New York.

Check out The Long Island Marathon, The Buffalo Marathon, Wineglass Marathon in Corning, Lake Placid Marathon, Rochester Marathon, Empire State in Syracuse.

Bread Run, Destination New York

Some of the Half Marathons are in far-flung corners of the state. The CNY Bread Run Half & 5K is in Fabius, NY which the organizers assure us “Fabius, NY is not at the end of the Earth…” If you are looking for a “Destination” race, some of these smaller Marathons or Half Marathons may be just what you are looking for.

The Race and the Memories

The smallest marathon I have run so far ended up being one of the most memorable. Often these smaller races are more personal and intimate: it can feel like the community has embraced you. You may end up seeing the few hundred participants several times over the course of the race weekend. You will eat together, you will sweat and swear together. After the race you will get to celebrate together. It can be a truly remarkable experience.

I have run Boston six times and Hartford, which is also a large race. There is a certain excitement to being with thousands of fellow travelers. When you walk down the street in a city on Marathon Weekend and see someone else in race gear, you know. It just takes a glance and a nod. The Tribe has arrived and something big is about to happen. It is exciting. You are part of the Event that every one has prepared for and is expecting. There is a vibe and a pulse that you can feel.

Big City and Small Town offer completely different experiences. The struggle to the finish line is varied only by the terrain and the weather. Each marathon has 26.2 miles, but each is a unique experience that is a thrill to be part of.
