About This Activity

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 race is pending USATF certification for 2014! This is a flat course beginning on the Highland 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 eight 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! *Preregister by March 28th to guarantee your t-shirt today!

*Please note that the t-shirts are for runners only.*

*Walkers will receive an event bracelet.*
