GREENE –The 94th annual Labor Day Picnic in Greene is fast approaching, one of the longest-standing festivals in Chenango County. And with festivities set for Labor Day - Monday, Sept. 2 - both participants and volunteers are being requested for the 6th annual 5K Road Race.
The 5K is slated for 9 a.m. at the Greene Lions Club park. The race is sponsored by the Greene Labor Day Picnic Association.
The race and walk is held on a course officially certified by USA Track and Field, said organizer Steve Page. The course is a wheel-measured five kilometer (3.1 mile) road race.
The course will start and finish near the large pavilion at the Greene Lions Club park and a map will be affixed to the wall of the pavilion so participants and bystanders can have easy access. According to Page, each mile and the turnaround location will be clearly marked along the course.
