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 The Giving Circle to their local Outreach Team.
Over the past 6 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, Saratoga Center for the Family and Schuylerville Caring and Sharing Program.
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.
Worship services are held at 10 a.m. each Sunday. Sunday school for children is held concurrently with worship services. All are invited and welcome to join us for our services at anytime.
