ABOUT: Held in memory of race co-founder Diane Sherrer, the Women’s Distance Festival 5K celebrates women’s running with a women-only road race and walk. New for 2021, the race will be held on Mothers Day—Sunday, May 9th. Women and girls of all ages run together along the flat and scenic Dryden Rail Trail.

WHERE: The start and finish is at Dryden Lake Park in the Town of Dryden—this race’s original venue—and will be run on the Dryden Rail Trail/Jim Schug Trail. The trail is flat, with a crushed gravel and packed dirt surface. There is plenty of free parking near the staging area.

NOTES: Restrooms may not be available, and we are not allowed to bring in porta-potties! There will be limited water available at the start/finish area. Please bring your own water bottle and carry it if needed. Runners will be provided with an on-the-go post-race treat at the finish. Results will be available online immediately following the race. For remaining questions, contact race directors Lorrie Tily (ljtily@gmail.com) or Chris Irving (irvassoc@aol.com).
