The Thacher Park Trail Running Festival is all about being on the trails for as long as or little as you would like. The event offers five race distances: 5K, 10K, 13.1M, 26.2M, and 50K. The event debuted on September 13, 2014 in conjunction with the Thacher Park Centennial Festival. In 2015, we expanded the event to use more of the park's trails providing even more opportunity to see all that the park has to offer. The event is held in conjunction with the Albany Running Exchange's Club Day. In addition to the five main races, there is also a half mile kids race held as part of ARE Club Day.
