Race Preview: 2017 iRun for Kids 5k/10Mile Run/Walk

If you are looking for a good family-friendly race that supports a good cause, here it is! Come join the fun in Albany on March 11th for the 15th annual iRun for Kids  5k and 10 Miler, which is a fundraiser for the Albany Public School Foundation. There is also a new 1k Little Leprechaun Dash available this year for kids (pre-k to 2nd grade.)

The race begins at the North Albany Shopping Center and goes over the bridge there before weaving through downtown and out to Bryant Park. It’s a great opportunity to get in a Spring race no matter your age or speed. Walkers as well as runners are encouraged to participate, though there is a 3½ time limit for the 10 mile race. Strollers and leashed dogs are also welcome on the course (though asked to start behind the other runners and to stay to the right of the path so other runners may pass.)

All the race distances are chip timed, and there will be water stations and porta potties available. There will also be prizes for top male and female in each age division and there will be pizza, fruit, bottled water and other items waiting at the finish line for all runners. There are also many restaurants located inside the North Albany Village’s parking lot by the start line, so this would be a great opportunity to grab a bite to eat after you celebrate completing the race.
