The Altra Federal Credit Union 5K starts is on Saturday and starts and finishes at the Mayo Civic Center. The race begins on East Center Street, turns and heads north on East Silver Lake Drive. You take the road all the way to Broadway along Silver Lake and then go over the bridge on Broadway and go south on the trails along Silver Lake back towards downtown. At the end you turn and come into the finish on East Center Street. It is a beautiful route going around one of the icon parks in Rochester. Watch out for all the geese as you travel through the many flocks that call this lake home all year around.
If you are crazy enough, maybe you want to try the crazy weekend edition by running the 5K on Saturday and running the half/full/relay on Sunday. You get $10 off your Sunday race if you crazy enough. Why not, consider the 5K as a warm up. Email to get a two day promo code.
