Join us as we celebrate women's suffrage in historic Seneca Falls, NY! 

Our race celebrates the passing of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote. It all started back in Seneca Falls, NY, when Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott held the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention – the first-ever Women’s Rights Convention. After two years of not being able to run in-person, our race will once again be held in Seneca Falls, the historic town where it all started. Can't join us in Seneca Falls? That's okay! With our virtual run options you can participate from anywhere in the U.S.! 

Our races serve as a powerful reminder of the long, difficult journey women traveled to obtain their right to vote. Crossing the finish line takes dedication, resilience and strength, all qualities shared with the suffragists that fought for women’s suffrage.

Men, women and children are welcome to join us for the Right to Run. Right to Run Inc.’s purpose is to inspire, empower, mobilize and connect women. That's why we encourage you to donate to one of our selected charities, which empower and benefit women. 

Right to Run 19K, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
