Event Details

A Willow Running Event

Join us on Saturday, August 22nd (originally May 30th) for the Thousand Islands Half Marathon, 10K & 5K on Wellesley Island, NY. The Start/Finish area for all 3 race events, as well as all post race festivities, will be at the Thousand Islands Country Club.

All 3 race courses encapsulate the true beauty of the Thousand Islands with scenic views of the river and the multiple Islands scattered throughout the St. Lawrence River. Runners participating in the Thousand Islands Half Marathon will be impressed with the magnificence of the Thousand Islands Bridge as they view it overhead at Miles 5 and 7. For those that ran the Thousand Islands Half Marathon in Alexandria Bay last year (2019), the new Wellesley Island 13.1 mile course has a similar total elevation gain but does not have any of the long steep climbs. A link to all 3 course maps can be found below.

You will want to register early to be sure to get a free parking pass that will allow you to park close to the Start/Finish/Post Race area. We anticipate that about half of this years participants will be able to park onsite while the other half will have to park/walk ~.6 mile away.

Post race event and Awards Ceremony will be packed with good food, brew, live music and fun inside/outside the banquet room at the TI Country Club overlooking the golf course.
