  • Starting Line Details:  The Route 50 Mile officially begins at 6:50pm, but all runners must be checked in by 6:30pm. The starting line is just north of Gil's Garage and Upstate Detailing at the intersection of Kingsley Road and Route 50. The closest GPS address is 818 Saratoga Road, Burnt Hills, NY 12027. Registration is located in the parking lot at the corner of Kingsley and Route 50. There is a drop of 48 feet over the course of the mile. Split times provided at each quarter mile.                                                                                                                                                                                                                
  • Parking:  Parking is available at the starting line at the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake High School, in the back parking lot (88 Lakehill Road, Burnt Hills, NY 12027). Please note parking is for both runners and parade participants and can fill up quickly. Alternative parking is available at the Richard H. O'Rourke Middle School (173 Lakehill Road, Burnt Hills, NY 12027).                                                                                                                                 
  • Finish Line Details:  The Route 50 Mile officially finishes at 711 Saratoga Road in Burnt Hills, at Designer Interiors of Ballston, across from Stewart's Shops. Water and ice cream will be available to all runners, and, if you did not pickup your t-shirt prior to the race, it will be available at the finish line. Awards will be presented immediately following the race.                                                                                                                                           
  • Registration Packet Pick-Up:  You may pick-up your registration packet the day prior to the race (June 12th) between 4:00pm to 7:00pm, or on race day between 7:00am and 4:00pm at our Glenville office:  543 Saratoga Road, Glenville, NY 12302. If you are unable to pick-up your packet during these times, you can still pick-up at the race start. In that case, t-shirts will be available at the finish line so you do not need to carry it through the race.

The Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Professional Business Association's Flag Day Parade will immediately follow the race. We encourage you to stay and enjoy the parade. However, if you need to leave prior to the end of the parade, please walk along the side of the parade route and not on the road itself. To top off the evening, at 9:15pm, fireworks will blast off behind O'Rourke Middle School.
