We will be moving to the fall on a Sunday morning, September 26, 2021. The runs will include the half-marathon and the addition of a full marathon.
This past year with COVID has led to a transformation, after 43 years, to the Tromptown runs. The name, date and times have changed and another run has been added, the full marathon. The two runs are some of New York State's, if not national, most challenging and yet scenic courses.
The half-marathon course, of 43 years, remains the same, but with new start and finishing lines. It includes circling the lake, then the continuation of the sights, sounds, and smells of fresh country air intensify as you leave the dam near the half-way point. As you head south for the finish line the views unfold of the valleys and the village to the east.
The marathon takes in the first 12.1 miles of the half-marathon course before turning south, then east at about the 17 point. Beginning around the 20 mile point one heads northwest and gradually ascehds to Tromptown's own but short "heartbreak Hill". From 22-25 miles one is heading west, finish line bound, descending with tha wide panoramic view of three valleys and their surrounding hills. The last mile is level in the village.
Both courses are loop courses. They start very near the finish line in front of the school. Both are certified. With the new marathon course and moving the start and finish lines of the half-marathon new certifications for both were required.

The two runs will help to support various community endeavors.
