The Women’s Right to Run is an event featuring both a 19K and a 5K running race in historic Seneca Falls. Light rain Saturday morning did not dampen the spirit of the runners.
The course is picturesque and relatively flat. Both distances run through the New York Chiropractic College, by the Elizabeth Cady Stanton house, and by the statue of “When Stanton Met Anthony.”
Both races end at the future home of The National Women’s Hall of Fame, the Seneca Knitting Mill. The event is a fundraiser for the renovation and will become The Center for Great Women.
32-year old Mark Matthews Jr. of Trumansburg was the overall 19K winner. Kate McCormick of Jamaica Plain, MA was the first women to finish and placed third overall.
