Saturday Morning Runs at 7:00 AM AND Sunday Morning Runs at 8:00AM

We currently have group runs every Saturday morning. They begin at the Kinderhook Village Square, generally at 7:00 am (summer) and 8:00 am (winter), but we also mark earlier and later starts for those so inclined.

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, 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.
