Kinderhook Runners Club
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. As of July 2012, we have over 200 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.
Care to join us? Here's a membership application.
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 7:30 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.
If you care to join us some Saturday email us at info@KinderhookRunnersClub.com,
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!
Sunday Walks and Runs 8:00 AM
Every Sunday morning members and non-members have a 3 mile walk or a 3-7 mile slow run.
The walks are a new addition to our weekly schedule. So come out to the village square and join us.
