The Start/Finish area for all 3 race events, as well as all post race festivities. We will be offering various Time Slots of 50 or fewer runners starting on Friday Aug 21 evening and then again on Saturday Aug 22 morning. Be sure to look at all of your "Wave" options before registering. Choose the Time Slot that works best for you before they fill up. All 3 race courses encapsulate the true beauty of the Thousand Islands with scenic views of the river and the multiple Islands scattered throughout the St. Lawrence River. Runners participating in the Thousand Islands Half Marathon will be impressed with the magnificence of the Thousand Islands Bridge as they view it overhead at Miles 5 and 7. For those that ran the Thousand Islands Half Marathon in Alexandria Bay last year (2019), the new Wellesley Island 13.1 mile course has a similar total elevation gain but does not have any of the long steep climbs. runsignup.com/Race/NY/WellesleyIsland/ThousandIslandsHalfMarathon5K
