East Avenue Grocery Run is on November 3rd. This event is all about fitness, family fun, and food for all!! The Third Presbyterian Church, 4 Meigs St., hosts the event and your entry fee will help provide food for Rochester-area families in need. Events include: a 5K brought to you by Wegmans and Constellation Brands and a Marathon Financial Family Mile. Runners and walkers are welcomed in both events. Last year the participants ranged from age 4 to 84! The 5k Run and Walk starts at 8:15 am and the Family Mile starts at 9:15 am.
The SMP Boogie for Broccoli Children's Fun Runs are FREE and do not require advance registration.
The flat, fast course starts and finishes on fall foliage-framed East Avenue and the post-race feast features specialties from generous local sponsors including Juan and Maria's Empanadas, Java's and Balsam Bagels.
Please bring a non-perishable food item for the Food Drive in Memory of Foodlink Founder Tom Ferraro and get raffle tickets for fabulous prizes.
Since 2010, the Grocery Run has distributed nearly $230,000 to provide emergency food and meals for hungry people in our community. All the money raised by Messiah’s team, including registration fees, comes back to Messiah to be given to our food programs—like free Saturday lunches, Thanksgiving baskets, Greece Food Shelf, and more! And we get back much more than we raise in donations!
Pre-registration information: $25 for 5K and $20 for 1-mile race if registered by November 2nd and $30/$25 if registered on race day.
New this year for an additional fee: Men's and Ladies' Tech Shirts! Order at Registration! Ladies' shirts run small so please order accordingly. Or choose a Classic Cotton T-Shirt for no extra cost with your race registration. You must register by October 16th in order to receive a T-shirt.
