Amish Country Running Festival back for second year Sept. 28
On Sept. 28, all are invited be part of history in Randolph. This year’s Amish County Running Festival, featuring a marathon (26.2 miles), half marathon (13.1 miles), 10K (6.2 miles), 5K (3.1 miles) and 1 mile, has more happening than just a running/walking event.
There will be plenty of great food lovingly prepared by the East Randolph United Methodist Church, featuring a pancake breakfast and then switching over to a spaghetti lunch. The community is invited to come and dine, donations accepted, along with the hundreds of participants coming from all over the country and Canada.
There will be live music. There will be finisher medals. There will be aid stations at every mile (one will be cooking bacon). There will be prizes for the overall winners of each event and certificates for age group awards. There will be a Southern Tier Brewing Company Beer Zone and a fire pit.
And, did we mention that there will be a wedding too? Yes, that is right. A wedding! It’s Dunkirk resident Susan Corbett and her husband-to-be, Michael Carpenter. It’s a wonderful story and it goes back all the way to college where they were floormates. Fast forward 20+ years and they pulled into the parking lot next to each other at last year’s inaugural running festival, ran alongside each other for the 10K event, did some catching up, and here we are a year later and they are going to tie the knot and become lifelong running partners under the finish line after the last marathon runner comes in. Everyone is invited to share in this wonderful day.
Registration can be found online at www.CoachMarkWilson.com or by calling or emailing Tonia Wilson at 353-1288 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
