The 5K course is an out and back with a moderate gradual incline after the turn around point. There will be an aid station at the turn around point. 

The half marathon is a scenic, but challenging course. This course is a great way to get ready for some of the more flat courses in the area.

Jog for Jugs is organized by Project HEAL to raise money for local breast cancer survivors.  Many of us have a family member, close friend or co-worker who has been affected by this awful disease.  Our goal is to raise money to aid local families in their fight against breast cancer.

This race will be held rain or shine so please be prepared.
 
Project HEAL (Healthy Educated Active Lifestyles) is a non profit organized to help the community stay healthy and active.  Currently, we organize Jog for Jugs as well as Team Power House, which consists of 5-6 AAU youth basketball teams who compete all over New York and surrounding states in basketball games and tournaments.  For more information on Project HEAL email Jessica@powerhouseathleticsny.com.

Power House Athletics would like to thank everyone who came out today in the blazing heat to run, volunteer or watch our first event.  We realize that the heat did make it difficult on our runners, especially the half marathoners and we thank you for sticking it out!  We welcome any feedback you have to offer, both positive and not-so-positive as this is how we will be able to make this event better and better every year.  We are already thinking of improvements for next year including porta-potties at the start, more aid stations, and possibly a couple of road closures.  Sorry, we can't move the hills, but think of how much stronger you are now!!  For those of you who ran your first half marathon no one can say you did an easy one!!  Boast about your accomplishment of this race with pride.....it's not an easy course!  Again, please feel free to email me with ANY and all feedback you have to offer.  Lastly, if anyone has any pictures of the race I would love to see them.  Please email them to me!
