Sit back, relax, and let someone else do the driving!  Our dedicated shuttle bus service from Grand Central Station, Manhattan direct to Rockland Lake is available for an additional fee of $35 roundtrip per person. The option is available during the registration process.

Please note that you must finish the Marathon in less than 6 hours in order to sign up for the shuttle.


Race start is at 7:00AM SHARP. Strictly no early starts.

All participants, including late starters, will be timed from the actual gun time, regardless of the runner's actual start time. Please allow yourself at least 10 minutes before the race to walk from the number pickup area to the race start. The race clock starts ticking for everyone at 7AM!


Choose Packet Shipping when registering ($5.95), to avoid the lines on race day and have your shirt and bib delivered to you before the race. Option available for US addresses only, through August 12. All packets will ship out on August 15.
For runners that do not choose packet shipping, packet pickup is available at the race site between 6:00-6:45AM.
