So for $10 you get admission and seat for the game, a one hour pre-game meal of all you can eat Hot dogs & hamburgers, watermelon, kettlecorn, soda & water as well a ValleyCat baseball cap.

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.

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 7:00 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, 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!

Social Events & Races

We sponsor a number of social events such as the annual Christmas party, and our the summer picnic, and the Autumn “Red Apple Trail Run� through the Samascott Orchards and fields.
