About the OK5k

From its humble beginnings as a race by local runners for local runners, the OK5k has grown over its 23 years to one of the premier racing, running and community events in the Hudson Valley / Capital District. Its fast, flat course and USATF Grand Prix status attracts many of the most accomplished runners in the area along with many first-timers and others who just enjoy a good run. Truly a community event, supported by over 50 local sponsors and hundreds of volunteers and spectators, all the proceeds of the race go directly to local non-profit and charitable organizations.
