The 35th Annual Freihofer's Run for Women will be held on Saturday, June 1, 2013 at 9:45 a.m. (this is a new time).
The Freihofer's Run for Women 5km combines some of the top International and American women distance runners and over 4,000 women from the Capital Region and across the nation. From Olympians to recreational runner, it's a wonderful blend of competition, participation and camaraderie.
The start and finish lines are located on Madison Avenue, between the Empire State Plaza and the New York State Museum in Albany, NY.
2013 will be the 100th anniversary of the Freihofer's Baking Company, founded in 1913 by the Freihofer brothers in Troy, NY. The Freihofer's Baking Company has been dedicated to delivering baked goods with the freshest and purest ingredients to their customers. We are proud to again be sponsored for our 35th year by Freihofer's.
The 3rd Freihofer's Training Challenge using the popular Couch to 5k Training Program, starts March 18th.
For 10 weeks starting March 18, give your motivation a boost, improve your performance and make some new friends by joining one of three teams scheduled around at 6am, 1p or 6:30p training timeslot.
As a team member, you’ll join your team leader in a fun training program (complete with certified coach/trainer) based around the Couch to 5k Training Program. Through that popular fitness program, you’ll be trained to first walk, then jog and finally run the event’s 3.1 miles (intermediate program participants will have a more advanced workout). Toward that end, you’ll (1) spend one day a week training with your team leader at The Crossings of Colonie (see training times below), (2) another working out at a time that works best for you, and then (3) gather with your fellow participants for a group session led by our certified coach/trainer at 8 a.m. Saturday mornings at a centralized location.
