Looking for a change of pace? The 5th Annual Sleepy Hollow Half Marathon, scheduled for Saturday, March 21, has the best of fun and scenery. It is the perfect event if you enjoy running for fun or are gearing up for a spring marathon! If you are Boston Bound – Better run here first!
The Sleepy Hollow Half-Marathon, presented by RivertownRunners, features approximately 5 miles of carriage roads and groomed trails (meaning crushed gravel and dirt) in the Rockefeller State Park Preserve. The 13.1-mile USATF-certified course also travels along the Old Croton Aqueduct and, as in past years, winds through picturesque neighborhoods in Sleepy Hollow.
The idyllic landscape and scenic views of the Rockefeller State Park Preserve now make up part of the course due to construction and development along sections of the Sleepy Hollow waterfront. And if the magnificent Hudson River views on our new course don’t take your breath away, the hills on our course will!

As the entire Sleepy Hollow High School Pioneer team for special athletes continues to be recognized locally for its hard work and sportsmanship, several team members are currently taking advantage of exciting opportunities through the Special Olympics.
The most recent honor has been bestowed upon Felix Veloz who was chosen to be a part of the NBA Cares Unified Special Olympics Game in Madison Square Garden on February 14. The application process was very competitive, and fellow SHHS student Danny Elia created a highlight reel for Veloz to submit with his application.
