Have Fun at the Women's Run May 20

Friday, May 5, 2017

The sixth annual Mid-Hudson Road Runner’s Club Women’s Run takes place on Saturday, May 20, 2017. This popular event features a 5K and a 10K race, both of which take place on the Dutchess Rail Trail in Wappingers Falls.

The Women’s Run is a great introduction to racing for new runners. The shady and paved rail trail course is flat and safe, with no cars to contend with. First time 5K runners get a special medal to commemorate their first race. And our 10K is one of only two offered by the club this year; if you are a 5K racer looking to step up to the next level, this is a wonderful way to do it.  We are partnering with some local businesses to offer something different for our age group awards. And our tee shirts  -- offered in women’s sizes -- are always a big hit with our participants.

  • Women’s Run 5K and 10K
