The Bacon Hill Bonanza Road Race is being organized by a group of runners associated with the Bacon Hill Church. Our goal is to provide a safe, enjoyable race in the beautiful farm country of Bacon Hill for both beginner and expert runners.
The profits from the race will go towards repair funds at the church with a portion of the race proceeds also being donated to a local charity. Over the past 5 years of the race, we have donated over $2,500 to local charities including: S.A.F.E.R., Schuyler Park, Hudson River Crossing Park, Saratoga Plan, and Saratoga Center for the Family.
Bacon Hill Church, which traces its roots to 1818, has about 100 members today. The sanctuary, a landmark at the corner of Route 32 and Stonebridge Road, is believed to have been built in 1820. Its Sir Christopher Wren-style belfry is typical of churches of the era, and the ornate weathervane is considered rare. The bell in the turret was forged by a foundry in Troy, N.Y.
