The 22nd running of the OK5K Race in Kinderhook has been postponed for another year until June 2022 due to the continued restrictions and uncertainty surrounding the ongoing pandemic. Based on current conditions, it is neither advisable nor possible to responsibly plan, prepare, and hold a race in June of this year.
Dan Curtin, director of The OK5K Race in Kinderhook, has announced plans for a virtual-only event this June.
“This would be an informal run we hope will keep our beloved race in the minds of runners, as well as raise awareness of local charities the OK5K has historically supported.”
Although there will be no formal registration or fundraising, participants are encouraged to log 3.1 miles at any location they choose between June 11 to June 14, 2021 (while adhering to CDC guidelines on safety and social distancing) and submit their results to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 15.
“We also encourage runners to donate to their local food pantries,” said Mr. Curtin, adding that he looks forward to seeing everyone in person in 2022.
