The 45th edition of the world-renowned Freihofer's Run for Women will take place in two formats this year. You can choose to participate either in person in downtown Albany on Saturday June 3, 2023 at 9am or virtually (choosing a date between 5/28/23 and 6/4/23 on a course you pick).  For more information go to Join us for this amazing and empowering community event.

Our event weekend includes the Health and Fitness Expo, free Kids Runs, the Capital Kids 3K, the virtual 3K and 5K and of course the amazing 5k. Join us as we celebrate 45 years of women's running. Whether you run or walk you won't want to miss participating in 2023.

13th Training Challenge

The 13th Freihofer's Run for Women Training Challenge kicks off on March 20, 2023. During registration we ask you to choose your main location. This helps us to plan for mentor support. You are welcome to join any workout and we strongly encourage everyone to attend on Saturday mornings at 8:30am. Please note that we may have some field trips for clinics. You will get plenty of advance notice.

We have partnered with the Capital District YMCA once again for 2023. This year everyone in the Training Challenge will receive a 12 week membership to the Capital District YMCA. This means that you can run from the Southern Saratoga Y on Wednesday at 6pm with Challenge participants and then take a HIIT class on Thursday morning at 5:30am. Maybe you'd prefer a yoga class on Friday evening at the Bethlehem branch - this is a full membership for you. It is our hope that you will continue your fitness journey after the Training Challenge ends on June 3, 2023 and join the Y, but since we know people tend to procrastinate you do have another week in your membership and then you can join!

We have also partnered with Fleet Feet Albany/Malta and Brooks Running. Look for some awesome clinics and gear sessions.
