Daniel’s Run 5K @ Churchville Chili Middle School
Apr 18 @ 8:30 am – 12:00 pm

Our 5K is in remembrance of Daniel Myslivecek, who lost his battle with Melanoma at the age of 16. A friend of Daniel’s organized the first 5K in 2005 to help the family with medical costs. Daniel ran in that first race and died 4 months later from his illness. The 5K has continued with the support of our community and each year the proceeds are given to a family or organization that helps children with a life-threatening illness while heightening Melanoma awareness. Our organization has also partnered with the Golisano Children’s Hospital. In a three year period we raised $25,000 for support of the hospital and are fortunate enough to have a piece of the hospital in Daniel’s name.  

This is the second race in the Rochester Runner of the Year Series.

On Sunday April 26, 2020, the Strong Memorial Hospital Transplant Programs and the Friends of Strong will host the 19th Annual Rochester River 5k Run and Walk.

Sehgahunda Trail Marathon & Relay @ Letchworth State Park
May 16 all-day

“Dare to Experience” Sehgahunda!
Pronounced (Say-ga-hunda)

Join the Sehgahunda Trail Marathon & Relay group Facebook page to stay up to date with all things regarding Lady Sehgahunda!

WHY “SEHGAHUNDA”? WHY LETCHWORTH STATE PARK?

The Sehgahunda Valley (“Vale of Three Falls”), which encompasses the portion of the Genesee River Valley, was comprised of several villages settled by the Seneca People. The locations of these villages make up the current boundaries of Letchworth State Park.
Letchworth State Park spans over 14,000 acres, with miles and miles of trails – all with varying degrees of technicality to challenge both experienced runners and casual hikers. Many of the trails that make up this race are the very trails used by the Seneca Indians to access the Genesee River, which bisects this valley, giving rise to its nickname “The Grand Canyon of the East.”
We dare you to experience the beauty, history, and challenge of this unique event!

Includes
Chip Timing by YellowJacket Racing including Net Time (The time from when the gun goes off until you cross the start line is subtracted from your official gun time to get your net time) and splits at each of the relay exchange points. Note: As per USATF Rule 163 we do not use net times for awards, they are provided by us to you as an additional service only.
8 aid stations along the 26.3 mile course providing food and water/electrolyte drink.
Plenty of food and drink will be available at the finish line for runners and volunteers.
Hang out, enjoy some food, listen to some music and cheer on your fellow survivors as they come across the finish line. Feel free to bring your own favorite recovery beverage.
Distance specific custom finisher medal to all finishers, with an additional medal for the Sehgahunda 72!
Day 1 – Hoodie to all 26.3 solo registrants, long sleeved cotton shirts for the relay team registrants
