The Oak Tree Half Marathon is the premier distance running race in the region. Over 300 runners complete the half marathon. Run through the National Historic Landmark District of Geneseo and head into the Genesee Valley past Oak Grove savannahs, sheep pastures, and horse farms. Pass thousands of acres of permanently conserved landscapes, protected by Genesee Valley Conservancy.
The course features some of the most spectacular scenery in western New York. The event has a small town feel but includes all of the amenities you would expect at a big city race.
With live music on the course, historic aircraft flyovers, and hand-made finisher medals, the Oak Tree is a unique half marathon that showcases the beauty of the Genesee Valley.
Our course is Certified to be accurate by USATF #NY16114KL. The elevation profile is found on the Course Map.
