7.5 Mile Scenic Challenge will include parts of the 5K route with views of the Hudson River, Storm King Mountain and, of course, the beautiful Fall foliage. It is a challenging course with a one mile uphill climb that at mile 5 provides a beautiful panoramic view of Cornwall and Orange County territories noth - even the Newburgh Beacon Bridge on a clear day! There is a water table near the top. Followed by that panormic view is a sweeping downhill finish where the streets are lined with well-wishers.
The course has been certified by Brian Cavanagh. Custom-designed shirts guaranteed to all pre-registered for 5K and 7.5 Mile. Enjoy a runners banquet of oranges, bananas, bagels, cream cheese, coffee, water and gatorade with pizza and pastas following the race provided by Leo's Pizza in downtown Cornwall.
Come enjoy the stunning views from the dramatic Hudson River to the more bucolic Cornwall environs. You'll see why after docking at what is now Cornwall Landing, Henry Hudson felt this would be a good place to found a town.
