The Women’s Right to Run is an event featuring
both a 19K and a 5K running race in historic Seneca Falls, NY on Saturday May 7, 2016 – the Saturday of Mother’s Day Weekend. The event is open to all, it is NOT a women only event.

Seneca Falls was the site of the first Women’s Rights Convention in 1848 and is known as the Birthplace of Women’s Rights.

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 Vendor Village – which is located on a major street in town. It will 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.
