Countdown to event
Will you GO THE DISTANCE for homeless youth?
Support Homeless Youth. Support WAIT House.
Complete a 5K distance (5 kilometers is 3.1 miles or 16,404 feet) at YOUR PACE in YOUR WAY. No starting gun, no rules - just tons of fun!
The event starts Saturday, June 26 and runs for 2 weeks ending on Saturday, July 10. That means you have 2 weeks to GO THE DISTANCE. Do it all in one day or break it up. Do it YOUR WAY!
NEW THIS YEAR: Family Fun Run Launch Event
WAIT House is all about families - those we help and those who help us. We're inviting your family to join us for a Family Fun Run event in Glens Falls City Park (right behind the library) on June 26 from 9am - 11am. We'll be holding a series of runs around the park for each age group. Parents are welcome to run with their littles.
YOU CAN DO THIS!
Need help planning YOUR 5K WAY? Here are a few ideas to get you out and moving!
- Walk your dog around your neighborhood
- Go for a hike with your kids. There are tons to choose from!
- Run on a treadmill at home while binge watching your favorite show
- Go for a morning jog along the Hudson on the paved Betar Byway (.6 miles) and the South Glens Falls Beach Bikeway gravel extension (1.3 miles). Round trip total: 3.8 miles
- Walk or run with a friend (6 feet apart of course) on the Feeder Canal Trail (9 miles of trail to choose from)
- Grab your roller skates or rollerblades and check out the Warren County Bikeway
- Feeling competitive? Chart your own course and invite some friends to race you to the finish line!
Get creative! The options are limitless and remember - you have 2 weeks to GO THE DISTANCE.
