Walkers needed for Rochester Half Marathon

August 23, 2019 06:24 PM

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)- It's less than a month before Rochester Marathon weekend, which kicks off on September 21.

Many people hear the word marathon and think about how they can't run. The good news is: you don't have to!

A lot of people actually walk- not so much for the full marathon, but for the half marathon scheduled for Sunday, September 22.

The event is 13.1 miles long, but race organizers say not to let that scare you. 

"You are more than welcome to walk, this is a very walker-friendly half marathon and we have a huge contingency of individuals who train throughout the summer to walk the half marathon, so this is a great way to take part- whether you walk, run or each," says race organizer Ellen Brenner-Boutillier.

It isn't too late to register for the events of race weekend. It's September 21-22 and News10NBC is proud to be a sponsor.
