Runners follow an out-and-back course through the apple orchards and farm fields of upstate New York’s gorgeous Adirondack Mountains at the Octoberfest Half Marathon, which starts and finishes at the headquarters of the Peru Fire Department on Bearswamp Road. From there, the course makes a clockwise loop through this small town of roughly 7,000 residents, with mostly rolling hills along country roads.
