Catharine Valley Half
Montour Falls, NY, United States

The course uses an out-back format along the Catharine Valley Trail. Starting from Watkins Glen HS's athletic stadium (rear of the HS) it runs south, passing through the town of Montour Falls on its way to a turnaround point just shy of Millport. The surface is packed cinder w/ pavement through Montour. It's mostly flat for the opening/closing 3.5 miles w/ a gradual uphill from miles 3.5 to 5 (which you'll get more than paid back through its corresponding down on the return). It's a pretty fast course, good for both first-timers and those looking for a near-PR time.

Half Sauer Half Kraut Marathon

This year some big city Marathons will cost you more than $150 to enter. You probably have to fork over another $200 to get a hotel room that is within 10 miles of the start at best. By setting your alarm clock to 2:00 AM you get a shot at a parking spot somewhat close to the start and you get to warm up for another 3 hours until you finally get out of line for the Porta Johns. The Sauer Kraut offers a somewhat different experience. You can park at the Cannstatter Volksfest Verein German Club and hop onto a free bus shuttle. You will be running on a mostly shaded & (mostly :-)) flat bike trail alongside the Pennypack Creek.
