Rail Trail 5K run/walk returns to Granville countryside

Saturday, June 2, 9 a.m.—GRANVILLE, N.Y.—Run or walk on a rail trail through the bucolic Washington County (N.Y.) countryside at 9 a.m. on Saturday, June 2, at the ninth annual Rail Trail to the Footbridge 5K trail race in Granville.

Events include a 5K race and Fun Walk, along with a 1K Kids’ Fun Run. The 5K is a scenic, relatively flat course that will be fun for both the experienced and novice runner and walker alike. Bring the kids, as this is a family-friendly event that features children’s activities at the Slate Valley Museum in Granville.

Top finishers will be rewarded with great local prizes, including Telescope® director’s chairs to the top three finishers in the 5K, and maple syrup from Rathbun’s Maple Sugar House to the top three finishers in each age group. Plus, each finisher will receive a commemorative slate trivet (limited).

Registration is $20 for the 5K and $5 for the kids’ 1K Fun Run. Register online at railtrailtothefootbridge5k.com or during packet pick-up from 7:30-8:30 a.m. at the Slate Valley Museum, 17 Water St., Granville. Shuttle buses will transport runners and walkers to the starting point at Andrew’s Lane.
