    Very happy to find a local 5K to run this weekend while I am on call. This is a 5K that helps with the problem of hunger in the community. It is located in Henrietta which is a suburb of Rochester about 10 minutes away from where I live so very convenient. Packet pickup was Thursday and Friday at the Henrietta Rec Center. The swag was excellent for a $20 local 5K. It included a fine cotton shirt, a water bottle, lip balm, and a finisher ribbon and came in a reusable grocery bag. I liked the finisher ribbon idea. While obviously not as nice as a medal, it is a good cheaper alternative as it is nice to have some kind of finisher item to place in my medal collection. The race started in a park in Henrietta. I wouldn’t call the start unorganized but you could tell the race organizers were just as confused as we all are about how much social distancing is supposed to happen now. It sounds like they originally had plans for waved starts and more social distancing but now that things are opening up they loosened the plan to make it more fun and it was sort of a rolling mass start. The course is pretty easy but nothing special. The only challenge was it was hot outside. The first 2 miles are through local neighborhoods. Kind of boring but safe and the streets were closed to traffic. The last mile is in a park on paved and gravel trail. Also kind of a boring park. I did see two direction signs that were placed incorrectly in the park (why I took away a sneaker from production) but it was easy to follow the main path through the park. I crossed the finish line at 3.1 miles exactly. My time wasn’t bad for the heat but not my fastest nor my slowest 5K. At the end there is a table with some water, a table with results, and then you walk to an amphitheater in the park where they give out food bags. The food bag is incredible. This race isn’t just about making sure community members don’t go hungry but also making sure the runners don’t go hungry. The bag had a water bottle, Wegman’s brand electrolyte drink, a granola bar, a fruit and oat bars (yes two bars!), a bag of trail mix, a banana and a clementine. There was definitely more calories in this bag than you burn in a 5K. Overall I thought this was a pretty well done local race. The course was nothing special but it went to a good cause. And the swag bag and food bag were very good for the price. This is one I would definitely do again if I were in town for the weekend.
