Join Jim Sinicropi and Jen Stanton live from the Seneca Falls Canal Harbor on Saturday morning from 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM as FL1 Sports presents the inaugural Right to Run 19K and 5K races on FingerLakes1.TV and YouTube.
The Right to Run is an event featuring both a 19K and a 5K running race in historic Seneca Falls, NY on the Saturday of Mother’s Day Weekend. 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.
