FRW2020: Good News and Bad News

Let’s start with the Bad News.

I have run the Freihofer’s Run for Women 5k every year since I started running.  It is obviously my FAVORITE race and I have never missed one – in all weather conditions, recovering from ankle surgery and even with a broken foot.

I have run this race (FRW) 12 times!!

And this year, I was named an ambassador!!

Well, I guess 13 is an unlucky number.

This year, the race has been cancelled!! 😦 😦

The Good News:

The Freihofer’s Run for Women has switched to a virtual 5k run for 2020.

That means that YOU do not have to travel to Albany, NY to run this race.

You can run the 5k no matter where you live!!

For only $25 or $20 with the code AMBSS5, you will receive:

  • 42nd annual virtual Freihofer’s Run for Women t-shirt & bib
  • A finisher’s certificate that can be printed out at home
  • Commemorative finishers’ medal
  • Coupons for Freihofer’s products
  • Automatic entry into Virtual 5k Sweepstakes with great prizes!

The t-shirts, medals and coupons will be mailed to participants the first week in June.

You will be getting exercise and supporting some great charities.

Please join me!!

For more info and to sign up, go to before April 30, 2020.

Here’s even better news:

As an Ambassador, I am giving away TWO free entries!!

  1. I’m sad for you – that is the one race that I’d like to run, and considering I don’t even know where exactly Albany is in the state, that’s saying something. I love that they host such an empowering race for women each year. I hope you can be an ambassador for it again next year; that said, I feel like you’ve been an ambassador for years already.

  2. Oh, no! I’m sure that’s a huge disappointment! I know how much you love this series, but I’m so glad they are making a virtual option for you. Additionally, how great that you can now share the love all over! I’m entering right now!

  3. So cool that your favorite race is having a virtual option. Much better than just canceling it outright. I entered your drawing. Keeping my fingers crossed! 🙂


    • I hope you win. Even so it is pretty cheap for what you get.

      I was hoping that that would re-schedule, though. Virtual races are just not the same as you know.


  4. Sounds like this race is to you what Dam to Dam is to me. This would have been my 13th consecutive year running D2D. It was scheduled for May 30th, but got moved to September 5th (WHEW!). I was so tempted (still kind of am LOL) to head to the Dam on May 30th and run the route all on my own….


    • I remember. Our races were always on he same day. I was hoping that they would pick another date but too difficult, I guess.


    • I know. I agree. It’s hard to reschedule. Just so many weekends. So they cancel.

      They really want women to get out there. Hopefully they will.
