We probably should call this event the "Most Rewarding 5K" as the greater the challenge, the greater the reward! 

If you want to test yourself more than your typical 5K, consider joining us for the 3rd Annual Toughest 5K (Between the ADK's and the Rockies) on Saturday October 15 in beautiful Canandaigua, NY at Bristol Mtn.  You will probably run your slowest ever mile (mile 1) and your fastest ever mile (mile 3) in this one single event.  

The season is splendid with cool temps, spectacular fall colors and not too far from a few nice Craft Beer locations. 

Earn a gold medal if you finish your 5K in under 30 minutes, silver medal if under 45 minutes, bronze if under 60 minutes or a finisher medal if over an hour. 
We will adding extra awards for sub 30 finishers and overall winners (top 3) that we will announce soon.

This unique 5K isn't for everyone but it just might be the challenge you have been looking for. Hope to see you there!
