How to Thrive in Rochester this summer
- Enjoy some time exploring the historic Erie Canal on the Erie Canalway Trail, which winds its way through Rochester and the surrounding suburbs on its way from Buffalo to Albany. Take a stroll to explore the villages of Fairport and Pittsford, or hop on your bike to challenge yourself to pedal 10, 20 or 50+ miles on this flat trail.
- New York State boasts some of the most beautiful hiking spots in the East for adventurous athletes at any level. Day trips to Letchworth State Park, Watkins Glen or Ithaca offer views of spectacular gorges and waterfalls alongside your workout.
- Before you kick back on the sandy beaches of Lake Ontario, get your workout in by playing a game of volleyball or going for a jog. Running on sand is a great challenge; stick to harder, packed sand near the water to start, and then over time you can transition to running on loose, dry sand. If you’re new to barefoot running, take short jogs at a time, and be mindful of debris and hot sand!
Keep an eye on Fleet Feet’s summer events to set a new goal for yourself. Whether you want to try your first 5K, take on a triathlon or get an outdoor boot camp workout, Fleet Feet can help get you on your way.
