Saturday Morning Runs

We currently have group runs every Saturday morning. Except for the first Saturday of the month, they begin at the Kinderhook Village Square. On the first Saturday, we generally pick an "away" location.
The 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, 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!

Wednesday Fun Runs

Every wednesday night at 6PM. The runs are 3-5 miles over a Village loop. We meet in the Kinderhook Village Square.
Come join us, anytime !

Special Runs

On the first Saturday of the New Year, KRC sponsors the Tortoise & Hare 5K race. It is a unique handicap run where your starting time is calulated based upon your best 5K of the year. The object: Get everyone to finish together. Well, at least everyone has a chance to win this one.
An Trophy is passed down from year to year. The current custodian having crushed the field in this year's race is Mike Hatch

In the Autumn join us for the Kinderhook Red Apple Run through the Samascott Orchards and Fields. Two distances are offered, a 5K and 10K course.
Both are trail runs, so bring your old muddy sneakers. You know the high tops with the star on the side. We don't want you to slip & slide.

Social Events

We sponsor a number of social events such as the annual Christmas party, and the summer picnic.
