Teams you have until April 30th at 11:59PM to add your team members. We need to prepare the shirts and get information to the park. Thank you in advance.
The following email was just sent to all 2020 Registrants to remind you to exercise your options. We have extended the date to complete this task to April 7th. After that you will be deferred to 2022. Here is the letter sent via Run Sign Up and from Ellen Brenner's email - CLICK HERE
Update on Day 1 Busses: We are able to acquire busses BUT here is the situation in order to have them. Busses can only be at half capacity currently which equals 22 people/bus and only one person/seat. No seat sharing. Which actually is pretty sweet, but I digress. In the next week or so, once day 1 registratio/transfers end, we plan on opening the opportunity to buy a seat on the bus for $10. It is for Day 1 participants only. Masks must be worn the entire time on the bus. The bus will take you from Parade Grounds to the start at Mt Morris. There will be specific time slots that you will be buying. Stay tuned for when that opportunity opens. Thx Ellen

"Dare to Experience" Sehgahunda!
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!
Volunteer sign up coming soon
