HISTORIC LEWISTON 5K: Friday April 28, 2023
START TIME 6:00PM:
Participants will park at Artpark State Park in Lewiston. The 5K course (VIEW COURSE MAP) will start and finish inside of Artpark State Park and will feature a scenic run through the village of Lewiston, New York. Lewiston was the first European settlement in Western New York. During the 1600s and 1700s, when the French and British traders settled in the area, Lewiston was instrumental in the development of the Great Lakes region because of its strategic location. There are many historic buildings and sites found throughout the village. One of the most famous is the Lewiston Frontier House featured on this years' finisher medal. The Frontier House, built in 1824, is situated at 460 Center Street and was once hailed as the best hotel west of Albany!
