WEST POINT HALF MARATHON -"Fallen Comrades Run"
Sunday, March 29th, 2015 9:00 AMThis course will take you on a tour of some of West Point?s greatest features and is broken into 2 loops (appx 10mi and 3mi). You start at Michie stadium next to Lusk Reservoir and then head down towards Thayer gate. From there, you turn left onto Thayer road and enjoy a gorgeous mile pinned between the Hudson River and Colonel?s Row. After you run under and past Mahan and Thayer Halls (our primary academic buildings), you are treated to a great view along Trophy Point. From there, you head down ODIA hill and run along the base of the Hudson where the cadets take their 2 mile PT test. You?ll pass both the indoor (Gillis Field House) and outdoor track (Shea Stadium) before heading up a steady climb and back to Washington Road. At the top you?ll run past the West Point cemetery where hundreds of the Long Gray Line?s finest rest. From there it?s a scenic view of Lee Housing where you?ll reach the 10k mark before heading towards Keller Army Community Hospital and turning into Grey Ghost and New Brick housing. As you leave the housing you can breathe easy on a comfy stretch headed back towards the cadet area before heading uphill towards Lusk Reservior. You finish the 1st (and largest loop) after circling around Lusk Reservoir and crossing the stone bridge.
