If you’re interested in running some trails Albany Running Exchange is putting on a multi-distance race festival in Thacher Park in Voorheesville, NY. This is an awesome park that I’ve personally only scratched the surface of. Go run some trails and stop by and see Indian Ladder which was amazing. Plus check out the amazing views around the park.
Event Name: Thacher Park Trail Running Festival (5K, 10K, 13.1M, 26.2M, & 50K)
Event Date: 8/23/2015

Description: The Thacher Park Trail Running Festival on Sunday, August 23, 2015 will feature trail races for five distances: 5K, 10K, Half Marathon, Marathon and 50K. All races will be held on the trails of Thacher Park. Trails on the course will range from grassy fields to more technical terrain with roots and rocks as well as a few hill climbs. Road crossings/pavement will be minimal. All races will start at the same time (8:30AM) and in the same direction. The half marathon, marathon, and 50K will all feature loop courses in which runners will be able to pass through the start/finish area in between loops. Race entries include food all day (pancakes, then BBQ) along with on-course water and other supplies (applicable to the longer races.) Merchandise giveaways are guaranteed to all entrants prior to August 9. The event will be held in conjunction with the Albany Running Exchange’s Club Day, which means that there will be also be food, music, and games all day!
