About this Event

The River Run for the Roots is a 5K run/walk from the Common Roots Brewery.  This looped course will start/finish in the Park and Ride lot behind Common Roots.  The scenic course winds through the village of South Glens Falls, including the Betar Byway along the Hudson River.  The race will be a joint fundraiser for the Riverkeeper, a local organization seeking out polluters and teaming with citizens scientists and activists to reclaim the Hudson River.  We will also raise money to support Common Roots and their staff after the fire that has damaged the brewery.  Come join us after the race and enjoy a beer and some refreshments.
