5K For Forgiveness

Barker, NY

Due to the current situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we've unfortunately had to cancel this year's event. Refunds have been issued.

Please join us on Memorial Day May 25, 2020 along the southern shore of Lake Ontario for the 5K For Forgiveness Run/Walk. This professionally timed and managed event is only $10 right up until race day!
The Forgiveness Run aims to encourage us to face an issue that not only impacts our emotional well being, but also is vital to our physical well being. Studies show that unforgiveness weakens our immune system, effects the blood flow, and reduces the number of cancer fighting cells. It has been proven that the act of forgiveness is vital to your health. Sandy Arena, an entrepreneur, mother, writer, and survivor will be sharing her story of forgiveness. 
Professional timing and finish line services will once again be provided and organizers are planning to have a food truck on site for those who wish to stay for lunch.

The race will start and finish at the beautiful and scenic Lighthouse Christian Camp along the Lake Ontario shoreline in Barker. There will be a mid-point water stop on the course and fruit and bottled water will be provided at the finish line.
