I always loved running...it was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs.
The Kinderhook Runners Club is a local organization formed to promote running in the Kinderhook NY area. The club was formed in January of 2009. Currently, we have over 150 members, generally from the Columbia & Rensselaer County areas, but also from the NY Capital District, Boston, etc. Membership is open to everyone. We have two levels of membership, individual and family with annual dues of $20 and $25 respectively.
We currently have group runs every Saturday morning. They begin at the Kinderhook Village Square, generally at 7:30 am (summer) and 8:00 am (winter), but we also mark earlier and later starts for those so inclined.
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.
If you care to join us some Saturday, email us, and let us know how many will be coming. We'll give you the route, be there to welcome you, and set water out for you as well!
We sponsor a number of social events such as the annual Christmas party, and our the summer picnic, and the Autumn “Red Apple Trail Run” through the Samascott Orchards and fields.
