About The Hairy Gorilla Half Marathon and Squirrelly Six Mile

The Hairy Gorilla Half Marathon and Squirrelly Six Mile in Voorheesville, New York is an event that should not be missed! This race takes place on the 29th of October 2023 and is a great opportunity for runners of all skill levels to enjoy the scenic beauty that this area has to offer.

The route for both races (the half marathon and six mile) are relatively flat with no major elevation changes, which makes it ideal for those who are looking for a challenge but don’t want too much difficulty. The scenery along the course is breathtaking; you will pass by rolling hills, lush forests, picturesque farms and meadows full of wildlife. The fall foliage is especially beautiful at this time of year so make sure you take your camera!

Weather wise, temperatures during October in Voorheesville can range from mild to cool depending on when you come in town, so it’s best to plan ahead and dress appropriately. Typically there won’t be any rain or snow storms during this time period but if there were they would likely occur early morning before the race starts so it wouldn’t have much affect on your performance.

At the start line you’ll find plenty of support from both competitors as well as spectators who have come out to cheer everyone on! There’s also plenty nearby parking available which makes getting ready quick and convenient. Anything special about this particular half marathon? Well aside from being located near some truly amazing sights throughout Albany County (including John Boyd Thacher State Park), some say that if you’re lucky enough -you may even catch glimpse of a hairy gorilla just off one of the trails…how exciting!

All-in-all I definitely recommend signing up for the Hairy Gorilla Half Marathon & Squirrelly Six Mile race held in Voorheesville NY each year -it promises an enjoyable experience surrounded by wonderful people and stunning views that can only be found here!
