Okay so with a name like the Gardiner Dump Run, you probably aren't thinking of wooded scenery and a beautiful place to run. But in this case, even though you are running around a transfer station, you are still going to be in a beautiful place.

On September 25th, you are invited to be part of the First Annual Gardiner Dump Run being organized by Gardiner Parks and Recreation and the Gardiner Trail Alliance. You can choose to do the 5K or the 10K which would simply be doing the 5K route twice. This event will be on a single-track trail that traverses wooded hillsides along the Wallkill River just behind the Town of Gardiner Transfer Station.
