THE HAND IN HAND 5K RUN/WALK IS A USATF CERTIFIED COURSE
The course is flat, fast and accurate! In addition this 5K course is "record-eligible" under USATF standards.
This awesome event is a fundraiser for the Special Needs Pre-school known as the Panichi Family Center for Communications and Learning in Beacon, NY. The 5K USATF certified course (#NY14149JG) is a flat course beginning on the Poughkeepsie side of the Walkway Over the Hudson. The race proceeds over the Walkway and back. Make this your first 5K or a beginning of season warm up race! Not into running? This event also offers a scenic 5K non-competitive walk over the Walkway and back.
Maplebrook School initiated this event 12 years ago as a means of teaching our students about philanthropy and the importance of giving back.
We have age group awards, post-run food, music, and what's sure to become the Hudson Valley's most coveted run/walk t-shirt! *THE FIRST 125 RUNNERS WILL RECEIVE AN EVENT T-SHIRT! REGISTER TODAY TO RECEIVE A SHIRT IN YOUR SIZE (S-XL).
*Please note that the t-shirts are for runners only.*
*Walkers will receive an event bracelet.*
