Freihofer's Run for Women

Sat May 23 - Sun May 31 Albany, NY 12210 US Directions
2020 Freihofer's Run for Women has moved to a virtual format for 2020

With the continued importance of social distancing stemming from the worldwide coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), officials at the Freihofer’s Run for Women (FRW) today announced that the event’s 42nd edition on Saturday, May 30 has been cancelled and a virtual 5K option offered to those interested. Our number one priority is the health and well-being of our participants and their families, volunteers, spectators and sponsors.

The Freihofer’s Run for Women is offering three options to the participants who have already registered: 1) Switch to the virtual 5K -runners receive a 2020 shirt, medal, Freihofer's Product coupons 2) Donate their race entry fee to FRW’s charity partners (and receive a commemorative 2020 t-shirt), or 3) Receive a full registration refund. “We at the Freihofer’s brand believe that every little bit helps right now,” said Mary Pensiero, associate brand manager, Bimbo Bakeries USA. “For this reason, we plan to waive our no refund policy and offer full refunds to those that want them.”

Those requesting a refund need to do so by midnight April 15th

Those choosing the virtual run option will receive further information via email.  You can also check out the virtual run FAQ here: 

We hope that you will participate in the Virtual FRW 2020 or donate your entry fee and help us support some great local charities: The Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region’s COVID-19 Fund, Albany Medical Center Foundation and Girls on the Run

As always we thank all the City of Albany and all of our sponsors.
