WHY “SEHGAHUNDA”? WHY LETCHWORTH STATE PARK?
The Sehgahunda Valley (“Vale of Three Falls”), which encompasses the portion of the Genesee River Valley, was comprised of several villages settled by the Seneca People. The locations of these villages make up the current boundaries of Letchworth State Park.
Letchworth State Park spans over 14,000 acres, with miles and miles of trails - all with varying degrees of technicality to challenge both experienced runners and casual hikers. Many of the trails that make up this race are the very trails used by the Seneca Indians to access the Genesee River, which bisects this valley, giving rise to its nickname “The Grand Canyon of the East.”
We dare you to experience the beauty, history, and challenge of this unique event!
NEW FOR 2017!!
- New weekend! We'll be moving to May 20th & 21st!

- The Village @ Sehgahunda: We have rented all of the cabins in area E of Letchworth State Park for Friday and Saturday nights. These cabins are located just down the hill on East Parade Ground Road from the finish line and will be able to be rented by participants. Stay on site, cut your race day commute and hang out with other runners all weekend. YellowJacket Racing staff will be staying on site for the weekend and Grillzilla will be made available to all for cooking.
