    This is a 5K that returned for the first time since the pandemic. It is located in Sodus Bay at the lighthouse museum which is about a 45 minute drive northeast of Rochester on Lake Ontario. There was about 200 participants in the race. I am still not back to running so I walked this one with my parents who were visiting. Yellow Jacket Racing provides the timing and helps with the race so it was well organized. You can get your packet at the store the day before or race day morning. We got it raceday morning. Parking was easy and so was packet pick-up. Packet included bib and shirt. The shirt is a cotton white T but it has a nice red and blue design so it is pretty and a good fourth of July shirt. The course goes through the neighborhoods by the lake. It is pretty with some lakeside views. We also saw some wildlife including a fox and a few rabbits. Course isn’t too hard though it is hard to judge walking. There are some minor hills, inclines/declines but nothing tough. The only tough thing is one of the minor hills is near the end and being by the lake there is a headwind in one direction. There were mile markers and 2 or 3 water stations. Course was also well marked and chipped time at start and finish. At the end you got a medal. It’s one of those generic medals with a race sticker on it but it’s better than no medal for a small local 5K. Our time was quite slow even for walking but we were under an hour. I am trying to make sure I can run the boilermaker this weekend so was not pushing myself at all this race. This is one I would definitely do again if in town and worth the 45 minute drive.

    Frustrating I'm sure not to be able to run this, but at least you had two great walking partners 😊. Hope your foot feels strong enough to run the Boilermaker… MORE
