Contributions that were added to entry fees by participants and donations from others were used to support our grants totaling $7,000 to youth groups & schools to combat underage drinking, impaired driving and teens’ lax use of seat belts. Plus this year we awarded scholarships totaling $4,000 to 6 deserving seniors from the region. That’s $11,000 given away in 2014 thanks to the generosity of many.
Sean's Run Weekend April 23 &24, 2016
Chatham, New York
Sean’s Run Weekend is the kind of event “You Don’t Want To Miss Out On!” Our 15th edition promises to be the best ever — so whether you’re a past participant or have never experienced our highly touted foot race/community walk or cycling ride, join us in 2016.
Come see why Sean’s Run Weekend was voted Columbia County’s Best Community Event–Spring in 2015 by our participants, spectators, supporters and sponsors in a contest by the Columbia County Chamber of Commerce and the Register Star and Chatham Courier newspapers. And don’t miss out!
Sean’s Run 5K on Sunday, April 24th, is the flagship event of Sean’s Run Weekend. Widely acknowledged as one of the largest and best managed spring run/walk experiences in the region -- together with its outstanding array of post-race amenities-- the 5K is a perennial pleaser. This year our new expanded food court will await all of our finishers PLUS there will be new exhibits like Artists for Sean’s Run and live performances by the Berkshire Bateria drummers who will keep a beat that’s sure to get your heart pumping before the start. Preceding the 5K on Sunday is Meghan’s Mile, our youth race for the 12&U crowd, as well as a shorter course for walkers. The first 1,400 to register in the 5K or Meghan’s Mile will receive a premium long-sleeved commemorative T-shirt.
Sean’s Ride on Saturday, April 23rd, is the region’s premier spring ride offering your choice of 50-, 25-, and 10-mile scenic routes on the beautiful, scenic roads and by-ways bucolic Columbia County . (See the outstanding ride review at the GrandFondo website: Sean’s Ride Offers Good Reason to Ride.) Boasting real on-route supports, classy rest stops, superb event management, and a totally awesome refreshment spread at the finish — coupled with the long-sleeved post-ride T-shirts for the first 250 to register — there’s really no excuse not to come cycle with friends and family at Sean’s Ride. Our Saturday lineup also features the Zumbathon® and Super Saturday Sean’s Run for Special Needs Kids.
Before the run on Sunday there’s also theWorld Championship Battle of the Belts — a rollickying event designed to increase seatbelt use by teens through a fun and energetic interscholastic competition. We have awarded the teams with grants to implement programs that combat underage drinking, impaired driving and the lax use of seatbelts. Before the Battle we will introduce the winners of our scholarships. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors and the support of our participants, since the event first began, we will have awarded more than $200,000 in scholarships and grants.
In 2016 we will dedicate the 15th Sean’s Run Weekend to the memory of Christopher F. Stewart. Chris, a 17-year-old Shenendehowa HS student and captain of his football team, was tragically killed on December 1, 2012 when his vehicle was struck on the Northway by another driven by an intoxicated, youthful driver.
