RIDE, RUN, STROLL or ROLL:
June 22 8 AM - 3 PM
Presented by Midtown Athletic Club, EquiTrails is a fundraising and awareness building event for the EquiCenter, a therapeutic riding center for individuals with disabilities that will inspire the greater Rochester community to get up, get out, and get active.
RIDE your bike on the 25 mile road course*
RIDE in horseshows throughout the day (EquiCenter students only)
RUN the timed cross-country 5K race through EquiCenter’s 200 acres of hills, fields and woods
STROLL or ROLL the wheelchair accessible and family friendly promenade with views of EquiCenter’s beautiful pastures and horses
Whether participating in the 25-mile bike ride, cross-country run on EquiCenter property, roll & stroll, or watching EquiCenter students ride at the horseshow, EquiTrails participants will be supporting EquiCenter’s mission to foster the personal growth of individuals with disabilities, at-risk youth, Veterans and their families through therapeutic equestrian activities.
