THE COURSE:  Scenic New Paltz and rustic Rosendale provide the backdrop for the New Paltz Challenge Half Marathon, which is on the scenic and shaded Wallkill Valley Rail Trail.  Start in the quaint village of New Paltz, head out past the stone houses of the Huguenot Street Historic District, and then ease down the beautiful carriage trail in the shadow of the Shawangunk Ridge. Take in country farms, cedar woods and a wide, secluded footbridge over the Wallkill River. In addition to the Huguenot Street Historic District, the trail passes through the Binnewater Historic District and the Snyder Estate in Rosendale. After enjoying the picture-perfect views of Ulster County, head back to the quaint village of New Paltz and cross the finish line beside the Gilded Otter, a brew pub that opens at noon.
