Women's Run: Flat, Fast and Fun!

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

The sixth annual MHRRC Women’s Run takes place on Saturday, May 19, on the Dutchess County Rail Trail in Wappingers.

Two races — a 5K and a 10K — are included in this female-friendly event, which starts and ends at the Van Wyck Lane trailhead. Both races take place entirely on the flat, paved, and shady rail trail. Runners who are taking part in their first 5K, or who have been running for less than one year, receive a special “First 5K” medal when they complete the course. And with one of only two 10Ks on the club calendar, this race is ideal for those who have done a few 5Ks and are ready to move up to the more challenging 10K distance. And the first 100 registrants will receive one of our popular tee shirts, which come in women’s sizes.

Through May 17, club members can pre-register for the race for just $20 (nonmembers pay $25) at www.mhrrc.org. Race day registration, for both members and nonmembers, is $30. For more information, email race director Polly Sparling at pts4257@aol.com
