Thank you to the following organizations for helping make the Rock 'N' Rail happen. Click on a logo to visit their website.
The route will start and finish at the Griffith YMCA and travel down the recently renovated Broad St., through beautiful Central Park and ties into the Erie Lackawanna Bike Trail.
The race will kick off all of the fun and excitement of the Rock N Rail Festival. The area’s best bands, great food vendors and all of the entertainment you can handle will immediately follow the race. Participants over the age of 21 may receive a free beer in the beer garden.
Every day the Griffith Family YMCA gives back and provides support to our neighbors by offering financial assistance in many ways. To an active member of the service and his/her family; to a low-income family for membership; to provide camp to a child who otherwise couldn't attend; to help a special needs individual socialize and get healthy in our Y who otherwise couldn't afford it.
By participating in or sponsoring the Rock N’ Rail 5K, YOU help us support YOUR community. We hope to raise $10,000 from this event.
