Timed Event

Join us in-person or virtually for the 12th annual East Avenue Grocery Run to benefit Rochester-area food pantries!

We’re psyched to announce the Grocery Run will be back on November 6th, with all the fun, excitement, camaraderie, competition and feeling-good-while-doing-good vibe you’ve come to know and love!

In-person participants will enjoy a fast, flat 5k course down beautiful East Avenue, across the Genesee, along the Riverway Trail and back. Organizers will follow all CDC guidelines for a safe, outdoor gathering, complete with grab-and-go snacks!

Virtual participants can choose any distance to run, bike, walk, swim or stroll – anywhere, anytime between November 5th and 7th. Recruit your friends and family to participate with you, no matter where they live!

Either way, you’ll feel great knowing your entire registration fee will go directly to Rochester-area organizations providing food, hope and dignity for hungry people.

Thanks to our generous sponsors, donors and volunteers, the 2020 Grocery Run raised $55,000 for Rochester-area food pantries. We hope to do even better this year! Please join us and make a difference!
