  • 21st Annual First Night Saratoga 5K Run (2)

Begin the First Night celebration right by joining the run before the huge New Year's event!

Start and finish on the beautiful Skidmore campus. The first 3/4 mile is a gradual uphill on the perimeter road. The course exits the campus at Clinton Avenue and continues to Greenfield Avenue, continuing up North Broadway and back to campus. This is a moderately challenging course, including both hills and downgrades.

Limited to 1,500 Runners: Due to the overwhelming success of this run, and having to close-out registration several years in a row, there will be no day of race registration.

Awards: To the top three overall male and female finishers, and top three male and female finishers in each 5-year age division. No duplicate awards.

Shirts: All registered runners will receive a limited edition First Night Saratoga commemorative shirt.

Register Early!  Registration is $25 through October 31, $30 through December 23, and $35 through December 30. Entry fees are nonrefundable and non-transferable.
