2017 Black Diamond Express Half Marathon & 5K

The Lehigh Valley Trail is the former home to one of the most celebrated American railroads of all time: The Lehigh Valley — home of the famous Black Diamond Expresspassenger train, which ran from New York to Buffalo.

While the land that comprises the Lehigh Valley Trail is owned by Monroe County Parks, this rails-to-trails project was created by (and is maintained, year-round by) a small but passionate non-profit group called the Mendon Foundation, and we at the Mendon Foundation depend on privately-collected donations and volunteer help to mow, groom and improve it so that you can continue to enjoy it, year-round, for walking, hiking, biking, running, and more.

If you’re a runner, one of the best ways you can support the Trail and the Mendon Foundation is to run the Black Diamond Express Trail Races, on Sunday, August 27, 2017.

Rush-Henrietta Kicking Hunger 5K

Sat. 1 Sep, 2018 1:00 pm

The Rush-Henrietta Rotary Club, in conjunction with the Rush-Henrietta Area Food Terminal (RHAFT) and the Town of Henrietta Recreation Department, invite you to participate in the 2nd annual Rush-Henrietta Kicking Hunger 5K in Henrietta, NY. This race will take place on June 1st, 2019, at and around the Town of Henrietta Recreation Center located at 605 Calkins Road. Changes to this year's race include an earlier race date, to allow for participation of RHCSD students through the Sherman Elementary Run Club. and the goal of providing a USATF certified course for runners and walkers. Several other minor adjustments either have or will be made to build on the overwhelmingly positive feedback received after the 2018 race. 

The purpose of this race is to bring awareness and provide tangible solutions to the issue of hunger in our community, as well as continuing the tradition of promoting exercise and family-centered events in our town. Last year we were able to raise over $3,000 and collect hundreds of non-persihable food items to be used for the Rush-Henrietta Kicking Hunger Summer Food Program. This program was started three years ago by RHCSD staff with the aim of providing food for local families over the summer months. This past summer the program helped to provide groceries for over 200 families in the RH community. The money raised was also able to help provide support for other community food and student-centered programs through RHAFT.
