The 13.1 mile route begins at the historic Madison Barracks and takes participants along a scenic tour of Lake Ontario’s coastline before heading inland into Sackets Harbor itself. Along the way, runners will have plenty of time to take in the breathtaking views of Lake Ontario and its surrounding areas – from lush green forests to quaint cottages nestled away among rolling hillsides – making for one truly magnificent running experience!

August is typically mild in these parts with temperatures ranging between 60°F (15°C) during the day and 50°F (10°C) at night, so expect comfortable conditions throughout your run. The crowds are usually enthusiastic but not overwhelming; they’ll cheer you on all along your journey with their heartfelt support! And if you’re lucky enough, you might even catch sight of some local wildlife too – deer, foxes or maybe even a bald eagle soaring above head!

What makes this half marathon unique however is that it’s part of a larger series called “The Great Race” which includes other distances such as 10Ks and 5Ks for those who don’t want to tackle such a long distance event in one go (or those who simply fancy something different!). All routes follow beautiful trails filled with sights that will stay etched into your memory forever!

On top of everything else there are also post-race festivities taking place after completion which include great food options provided by local vendors plus live music performances for added entertainment! It really does make for an amazing end-of-the day celebration after conquering 13 miles worth of challenging terrain!

Overall this half marathon offers an incredibly rewarding challenge set against stunning scenery that any runner would love – no matter their skill level – providing them with memories they can cherish forever afterwards too!.
