Summer in Rochester: Marathons, 5K’s and More!

Summer is quickly approaching, and what better way to get excited than planning some events that will get you outside? There’s nothing more refreshing than a walk through the fresh air(or a run, if you’re into that!). To ensure you get a healthy dose of the sun while it lasts, we’ve compiled one run a month so that you can stay fit and stay outside!
