There will also be a one mile kids race.

A post-race barbecue will feature food from the Stony Creek Inn and beer from the Adirondack Pub and Brewery in Lake George. Prizes will be awarded for each age category, and all runners will receive 2-for-1 coupons good for skiing at Hickory this winter.

Double H Ranch's highly acclaimed Adaptive Winter Sports Program has served thousands of children and their families since the program's inception in 1998, completely free of charge to participants thanks to the efforts of volunteers and strong community support through events like the Hickory 5K.

  1. From Hickory's Facebook page today: "We have made the call to postpone August 11th's 5k until October 13 or 20. We'll have details soon. Sorry for the change of plans. On the bright side, this will be a great lead-in to the season."
