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.

5:00 AM departure, return by 2:30 ~ 3PM. You must purchase shuttle seats in advance (no race-day walk-ups, sorry). The shuttle is open to non-participants as well - you can purchase additional seats for friends / relatives. Shuttle seats only (without race registration) can be purchased anytime on our RedPodium Registration page.  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 at least 7 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 ($6.45), to avoid the lines on race day and have your shirt and bib delivered to your door before the race.  Option available for US addresses only, through August 12.
For runners that do not choose packet shipping, packet pickup is available at the race site between 6:00-6:45AM.


*Race shirts guaranteed for all participants that register by July 31.   Shirt sizes are Unisex or Women's fitted:  X-Small, Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, and Unisex 2XL.   We will do our best to provide shirts for runners who register after July 31, but no guarantees - register early!


There will be three aid stations on the loop, approximately one every mile.  All will have water and electrolyte drink.  The main aid station, next to Race-Day Central, will have fruit, chips, snacks, etc.
