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.

No Registration Limit This Year: Due to the overwhelming success of this run, we have had to close registration several years in a row, but with technology being better we can leave registration open.  There will even be day of race registration. However we do encourage runners to sign up early to save money and be guaranteed a hat.  Hats are only available to the first 1200 registered runners.

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.

Register Early!  Registration is $25 through October 31, $30 through December 23, $35 through December 30, and $40 on race day. Entry fees are nonrefundable and non-transferable.
