About This Activity

Walk/run to benefit Saratoga Bridges in the Saratoga Spa State Park. NEW COURSE this year, visit saratogabridges.org for the new maps. Start & finish at Columbia Pavilion. U.S. Track & Field Certified course; limited parking avail near starting line but plenty of parking is avail w/ shuttles from designated lots. Long sleeved moisture wicking shirts (Men's Sizes) for those who register prior to 10/1 for the 5K & 10K runners. Event capped at 2,000 w/ NO DAY OF REGISTRATION.


In 2011 we ordered men's and women's athletic fit shirts. Unfortunately, many people ended up with shirts that were too small. Many of you were able to exchange them for a larger size. This year we ordered Men's Sizes only. So remember if you are a women's S, you would mostly likely be a Men's XS, etc. Remember to register BEFORE 10/1 to get a shirt!
