This scenic course is USATF Certified and is exactly 5 kilometers/3.1 miles long. It starts at the Water Street Market in New Paltz. Runners and walkers will head south on Water Street, bear right onto Plains Road and follow it until it ends. Then make a sharp left onto the Wallkill Valley Rail Trail and head back to the Water Street Market.
As this year’s Turkey Trot is a virtual run, you can feel free to run any 5K distance at the time and location of your choosing. Runners can also choose to run the rail trail on the typical course. Your time will be recorded through the RaceJoy app upon completion.
