About The Cassadaga Lakes Running Festival
The Cassadaga Lakes Running Festival Half Marathon in Cassadaga, New York is an event that should not be missed. Held on 27 May 2023, this 13.1-mile race takes participants on a scenic journey through the beautiful countryside of upstate New York and the rolling hills of Chautauqua County. The route begins at Cassadaga Lake and winds its way around the lake’s perimeter before heading out onto country roads with stunning views of vineyards, farms, forests, and other rural landscapes. Along the course you will pass historic homes as well as small villages with charming storefronts offering refreshments for runners along the way.
With mild weather typical for late spring in this region, you can expect temperatures ranging from highs in the upper 70s to lows in the upper 50s during your run. The terrain is mostly flat but there are some rolling hills interspersed throughout which provide additional challenge for more experienced or competitive runners looking to test their stamina or set personal records.
The race usually draws a large crowd with spectators lining much of the route cheering on participants throughout their journey; adding an extra boost to everyone’s spirits! There are plenty of water stations provided by local volunteers who ensure that no one runs thirsty or dehydrated during any point along their run – a real bonus since hydration plays such an important role when running long distances like half marathons!
One special feature about this particular race is that it offers both full marathon and half marathon options so that those newer to running can still participate without having to commit themselves entirely to a full 26 miles right off the bat; allowing them instead to take part in just 13 miles if they choose too! This makes it great for people new to distance running who want something less intimidating (but still challenging!) than what a full marathon provides. Overall, if you’re looking for an enjoyable experience with spectacular scenery then look no further – sign up today for what promises be yet another memorable edition of Cassadega Lakes Running Festival Half Marathon!
