Certification as an ECO-Green Sustainable race
The Walkway Marathon races are VERIFIED green races through Athletes for a Fit Planet. This year, we will continue our efforts to minimize race waste, conserve water, and reduce our carbon footprint include minimal use of printed matter, reused signage, recycling and composting stations at the expo and the race, and locally sourced food at the finish line.

Please assist us in this effort. Already have a closet full of race T-shirts? Choose the T-shirt opt-out option when you register for the race. Carry your own refillable water bottle; hydration stations will be available along the course, and at the start/finish area. By refilling your bottle, you help us to conserve water.

Please Note:

  • There will be no race-day registration.
  • All participants for the MHRRC College to College 5K must be at least 16 years old on race day or have parent/guardian approval to run in the race. Anyone entering a false date of birth on the registration form will have their registration cancelled without refund.
  • Entry is non-refundable.
  • The course will remain open for one hour. All runners must complete the race within that time.

Bag Drop-Off/Pick-Up
There is no bag drop/pick up option for the 5K race.

Start Location:
Dutchess Community College, Poughkeepsie NY 12601

Portable Toilets:
A large number of portable toilets will be available at the start/finish area and near the hydration station on the course. Please DO NOT use private or public property along the course for this purpose.

Medical Support:
The Walkway Marathon is proud of the many volunteers from local municipalities and healthcare centers who are lending their support for this event. An EMT crew will be stationed along the course, and medical personnel from Dutchess County Department of Health will staff medical tents at the start/finish area, ready to assist with blisters, cramping, or other health issues. Bicyclists will also act as the “eyes and ears” on the course, summoning assistance for those who need medical attention.

The B tag scoring system will be used to time the race. Scoring mats will be located at the finish line. Because the clocks start when the gun goes off, the time they indicate might not correspond with your actual race time.

Hydration Stations:
Hydration stations will be located at approximately every 1.5 miles and staffed by volunteer service organizations and others from throughout the Hudson Valley region. Water and an electrolyte will be available at each hydration station, with sports drink served first, water second. The Walkway Marathon organizers aim to keep race waste to a minimum; please bring your own fluid bottle(s), and refill it at the hydration stations as necessary. Recycled cups will be available at each Hydration Station. Energy food will be available at one location on the course.

Headphone use:
For safety reasons, organizers strongly recommend that you do not use headphones while racing.
The use of personal music devices is strongly discouraged at this race. To enjoy all that our race has to offer and for the safety of all participants, The Walkway Marathon race committee encourages a headphone-free environment during the running of the Walkway Marathon. We believe your race experience and those around you will be greatly enhanced by leaving the headphones at home or in the car. Running headphone-free allows opportunities to develop camaraderie with your fellow runners and to enjoy everything the race has to offer. Plus, volunteers and spectators will be on course cheering you on and providing directions to help get you to the finish line. Runner safety has always been, and will continue to be, a top priority for our event. Please be mindful of the other participants and respect the race personnel to ensure a safe and enjoyable race for everyone.
