About The Thacher Park Trail Running Festival
The Thacher Park Trail Running Festival is a half marathon race held every year in Voorheesville, New York. This year it will take place on August 20th, 2023. The route of the race takes runners through the beautiful scenic trails of Thacher Park and along some of the most picturesque views in upstate New York.
The scenery that you’ll encounter during your run is breathtakingly beautiful. You will be running through lush green forests, see incredible rock formations and witness spectacular views of rolling hills and valleys below you as you make your way to the finish line. During this time of year, typical weather conditions are mild with highs around 85 degrees Fahrenheit (29 Celsius) and lows around 63 degrees Fahrenheit (17 Celsius).
At this event, crowds tend to be small but enthusiastic with many cheering for their friends or family members who are participating in the race. There’s also plenty of local vendors selling snacks and refreshments before and after the run so there’s something for everyone!
This half marathon has an edge over other races because it allows all participants to experience a unique challenge set against breathtaking natural beauty – something that can’t be found at any other race like it! Additionally, if runners choose to stay overnight they can check out some nearby attractions such as Howe Caverns or Indian Ladder Farms which offer fun activities such as zip lining or spelunking while taking in some truly amazing sights along the way. All-in-all this makes for an unforgettable experience that’s sure to have racers coming back time after time!
