Traversing beautiful viewpoints along the Hudson River from New Jersey to New York and back again the Interstate 17 Trail Run delivers amazing scenery as it tests your physical prowess.

This is NOT your average trail race. This trail is meant to test your strength and endurance. Seventeen miles with approximately 6500 ft. of elevation change.

What’s Included
All finishers will receive a unique one of a kind award created by a local artist.

Aid Stations: Mile 1, 5, 9, & 13 Fully stocked with water, sports drink, soda, gels, candies, oranges, bananas, chips, pretzels and more!
Course Details
You'll run four times on a four mile loop of rugged technical trails after a mile out and back on road to separate the field of runners for safety. You will complete 3 counterclockwise loops followed by a final loop clockwise. You must check in at the beginning/end of each loop to have your time card punched.

Mile 0-1: out and back on road

Mile 1-2: semi technical rock strewn dirt trail which leads to a steep long descent on rocky uneven jagged stairs and switchbacks. Once you reach the bottom you'll head north on smooth dirt trail along the river with beautiful views

Mile 2-3: a boulder filled rock scramble where you'll need to use your hands to navigate at certain points ends with a singletrack dirt trail with short yet steep ascents and descents along the river

Mile 3-4: singletrack dirt path takes you directly back into another rock scramble, however this portion is much more runnable, ending directly on the shore of the river

Mile 4-5: as you continue along the rocky shore trail you'll encounter the beautiful waterfall signaling your time to ascend the cliff using various switchbacks and staircases. Once you reach the top it's a short run through wide cross country skiing trails back to the checkpoint/aid station at the start/finish area

Miles 5-9 & 9-13 repeat miles 1-5. Last loop miles 13-17 you'll reverse your path.
