5K Run/Walk to help Raise Awareness for Substance Use Addiction/Recovery. Flat and fast 5k in Glens Falls, NY.
About this Event
The Out of the Shadows 5K is in its first year and is raising awareness for Substance Use Addiction/Recovery. The 5K Run/Walk race begins on Lawrence Street, just outside the parking lot of the Center For Recovery campus. It is a 3.1 mile course that goes through the side streets of Glens Falls. Ironically the initial part of the race passes the Open Door Soup Kitchen which many people in recovery take advantage of using. The overall purpose of this is to raise awareness of Substance Use Disorders and Recovery. Many of the side streets that will be passed by are residential streets. Our hopes are that the community will see our brightly colored Red and Teal shirts and increase the awareness to how many people substances affect and the amount of support that is available. Parts of the course will also emerge briefly on to Bay Street and Ridge Street, to include a presence on busier streets of the city. It will swing back to Ridge and Maple and end where we started just outside the Center For Recovery parking lot.
Water will be available miles 1 & 2 and at the end of the race
