The Rhinebeck HV Half & 5K is raising awareness and funds for the Brain Aneurysm Foundation in loving memory of Elizabeth “Liz” Ann Irwin. Mom of the race director and her sisters, beloved Grammie, devoted wife, amazing sister/mother in-law/friend/teacher/church member and pillar of the Rhinebeck community. She will forever be loved and missed. Donations can be made during registration by clicking on the Donate tab, by using the "donate" link on Race Website at https://fitfeetadventures.com/rhvmarathon, or by visiting the Memorial Page at http://give.bafound.org/goto/LizIrwin on the BAF website. Additionally, all profits from the race registration fees will go to the cause. Let’s make a difference!

Join us and race with purpose. All proceeds will go towards:

  • Funding new research

  • Providing support and educational materials to the medical community, the newly diagnosed, survivors, family members, friends and the general public regarding the facts, treatment options, and recovery process for brain aneurysms. 

  • Increasing awareness of brain aneurysms by promoting National Brain Aneurysm Awareness Month in September and by distributing aneurysm awareness materials to Emergency Departments in every hospital and to the community. 

Whether you're looking for a new destination race, a quick getaway from the city, a reason to return, or just a chance to explore Rhinebeck, the Full and Half Marathon promise to be great fun for everyone. Come for the day and race or stay the whole weekend. The race will feature rolling country roads on tree-lined streets, as well as views of the Hudson River, the Catskill Mountains. Course Description: This is a beautiful course that features rolling hills and picturesque village and country roads. There are many flat sections, and rolling hills are neither steep nor very long. It's just not completely fat as a pancake! The start and finish line are in the same location. The course begins at the Dutchess County Fairgrounds, marked with the letter "A" on the map. From the starting point the loop proceeds clockwise. At point "B" along one of the prettiest stretches of the course runners will turn around and return to the split, where they continue clockwise back to point "A." Half marathoners will proceed towards the finish line inside the fairgrounds, and full marathoners will venture clockwise to complete their second loop.

Elevation Description: Miles 1 to 4.5 are flat, runners begin gliding up and down on 3 percent grades from 4.5 to 6 miles. As you parallel the Hudson, visiting the pretty hamlet of Rhinecliff, you head north from 6 to 9.6 miles, turn around and then head south, passing expansive estates lined with stone walls on the gentlest of grades of -1% to 2%. You will turn left off River Road after 11 miles and head east toward the Village of Rhinebeck on gentle rolling hills averaging less than 2%. In the village on flat roads, half marathoners will end their loop by going left to finish inside the fairgrounds while marathoners will turn right and head out on a repeat adventure of their beautiful course.
