Saturday Morning Runs at 7:30 AM AND 9:00AM
We currently have group runs every Saturday morning. They begin at the Kinderhook Village Square.
The 7:00 run generally attracts the faster longer runners; the 9:00 run is new and for more casual runners. that run is a simple 3 miler run following the OK5K route.
The early runs vary each week. Most runs have optional distances from 3, 5, 9, and 12+ miles.
The Run of the Week is published on this site in the Members Only section.
