Welcome to the Seneca7!

our 13th edition


Now that The Plague is (mostly) behind us, your favorite 7-person running relay continues into its 13th year. Lace up your running shoes, gather together six friends or strangers, and head for the Finger Lakes appropriately bedecked in sunscreen (fingers crossed!) and tutus. The Seneca7 is stronger than ever!

Join us for a race inspired by good fortune and a deep body of blue. The Seneca7 will introduce you to the wonders of Seneca Lake: rushing inlets, crashing waterfalls, banks bathed in golden sunlight. All you (and your team) have to do is run around it.

Bikes Welcome

I want to ride my bicycle

Each year many teams commit to participating in the Seneca7 by bike. Bikes are environmentally friendly and take up much less space than motorized vehicles, plus they're a whole lot of fun - so we want to encourage their use. Typically about 25-30 teams journey around the lake by bike during their off-legs.

As a bike team, you'll receive the following exclusive perks on race weekend:

  • not required to follow the motorized vehicle routes during the race
  • exclusive parking: bamboo bike racks at the finish
  • special bib numbers
  • water at designated exchange points
  • course halfway support (Clute Park in Watkins Glen)
  • Special Needs bag pick-up/drop-off (Clute Park in Watkins Glen)
  • team gift bag
