How long will the 5K run take?
Finishing times vary of course, but our fastest runners will complete the run in about 25 minutes. Most runners will fall between 30-45 minutes. We have Superhero Sweepers who will be sweeping the course to ensure all runners cross the finish line safely.
WHAT IS THE COURSE ROUTE?
The 5K course is an out and back starting at the Boat Launch at Corning Preserve. The path runs north along the river with a turnaround at roughly 1.5 miles.
Are there water stations available?
Water will be available along at the turnaround and in the finish area. Girls can bring their water bottles to the event but, just like in practice, are discouraged from running with them. Additional water and snacks will be available in the finish area.
Where should I park?
Free parking is available at the Boat Launch. Please follow the direction of our volunteer parking attendants to ensure ample space for as many cars as possible. Carpooling is encouraged. Overflow free parking will be available in city lots and garages.
