From a course tour of downtown, waterfall passings, the Cayuga Waterfront Trail, and ending shy of the Commons, the Gorges Ithaca Half Marathon, presented by Cayuga Medical Center, brings you a taste of gorges Ithaca. We're planning on extending the COVID Modifications and Mitigation plans used for Red Newt's 2020 trail events to the 2021 Gorges Ithaca Half. While we hope we'll be out of the COVID waters by September, and can revert to a mass start and after-party, we'd like to err on the side of caution. We'll continue to assess and make changes as needed including refunds if things do, or don't improve.

The Gorges Ithaca Half, presented by the Cayuga Wellness Center, offers entrants a representative bite of Ithaca. The third course incarnation, new in 2017, will make use of the recently completed Black Diamond rail trail, allowing us to create one of the faster and more scenic road'ish half courses you'll find anywhere.
Paired that with an after-party on the Ithaca Commons featuring food from Fittnell Farms Catering including locally sourced ingredients, brews from Ithaca Beer, and music from the West Hillbillies.
