Men, women and children of all ages are welcome to join us for the Right to Run 19K & 5K, which will take place during Convention Days in beautiful Seneca Falls, New York. Convention Days is  is a three-day event that commemorates the United States' first women's rights convention that was held in Seneca Falls in 1848. On the second day of the convention, 68 women and 32 men signed the Declaration of Sentiments, which was the cornerstone of the women's equality movement. Join us as we celebrate the women before us and venture the road ahead!

Women’s Right to Run 19K, Inc.’s purpose is to inspire, empower, mobilize and connect women. The 19K distance is a nod to the 19th amendment, which gave women suffrage. This year’s net proceeds will be donated to Girls on the Run and Safe Harbors of the Fingerlakes.  Both of these organizations focus on creating environments where all people feel safe, secure, empowered, and confident, and your participation will help propel their initiatives forward!

19K & 5K Course Information
UPDATE FOR 19K - Please note that the 19K has been adjusted to an 8 mile distance due to the Heat Advisory for July 20th. The 5K course is the same. 
New 19K and 5K courses for 2019!

Both the 19K &5K USATF-Certified courses are relatively flat. Each race will begin and finish at the same location, which will be on the historic "Bailey Bridge" located near the Seneca Falls Recreation Center (packet pick-up location) and the Seneca Knitting Mill (the future home of the Women's Hall of Fame). The 19K race will begin at 8:00am and the 5K race will begin at 8:15am. 

The races continue south and east through the Town of Seneca Falls. When the races intersect with Stevenson Road, the 5K will turn left and the 19K will turn right, heading out of town on Garden Street Extension.

The 19K will continue south until it eventually turns east towards the lake on Airport Road. After a few scenic miles in the country, runners will continue along the lake until they reach the path that takes them through the tunnel on to the NYCC campus. This year, the course will continue around the campus and then runners will head towards downtown Seneca Falls on Bayard Street.  

Both the 19K & 5K will run their final loop past the Elizabeth Cady Stanton house. Runners will be greeted and cheered on by participants of the Women's Suffrage Procession and the Living History Presentations being held at the Elizabeth Cady Stanton House.

There will be Port-o-loos available on the courses. Each course will also have multiple water stops with energetic volunteers ready to lift your spirits with hydration and smiles. The 19K will have water stops approximately every 2 miles, extra electrolyte stations, and additional emergency staff.  **NOTE: The race organizers are working to secure cooling/misting stations for runners.**

Race timing will be provided by YellowJacket Racing. Runner and course safety will be provided in cooperation with the Seneca Falls Police Department, NY State Park Police, NY State Troopers, Seneca County Sheriffs Department, YellowJacket Racing , and local volunteers.

Disclaimer: The final USATF certified courses may have Start and Finish lines that vary slightly from the above pictured maps.

Ludovico Trail Fun Run

The Fun Run offers a fun, scenic, and easy 1.3-mile course that is a "down and back" trip along the beautiful Ludovico Sculpture Trail. Located on the bank of the canal, this trail is perfect for all levels of runners and walkers. This mostly grass trail has a crushed stone loop that will direct runners back to the start/finish line. The trail head and start/finish line are located on Bridge Street across from the new entrance of the National Women's Hall of Fame, which is also the former Seneca Knitting Mill.

Whether you're joining us for all the Live festivities in People's Park after the Fun Run, or just want to participate in this new event, we'd love to see you there. Registration is limited to 100 runners/walkers and the cost is only $15, which includes a FREE t-shirt if you register before Friday, July 5th!

T-shirt pickup will be held from 4pm-6pm on the day of the race, Friday, July 19th, at the Seneca Falls Recreation & Community Center (35 Water Street in Seneca Falls). There will be a timing clock for the Fun Run but there will be no bibs or individual timing.

We hope you'll be part of this inaugural Fun Run event!


Please note that when registering for the 19K, the distance will be adjusted to a 8 mile course due to the forecasted heat index on Saturday.
