Competitors take to the path, and the water, for annual Icebreaker Challenge 5K
ALBANY, NY (WRGB) —
It was Runners Vs. Rowers Saturday in Albany, for the 12th annual Icebreaker Challenge 5-K.
Runners hit the bike path at the Corning Preserve, while the Albany Rowing Center raced alongside them on the Hudson.
The Albany Rowing Center said this race was virtual for two years during the pandemic, so they're excited to be back and showing people their love for rowing!
Club President Rebecca Clark said, "This is our invitation to everyone to come out and enjoy the Corning Preserve. We're out here basically year-round, rowing, and we have a number of opportunities for people to come down and learn how to row, and just come out and enjoy the Hudson River in Albany."
