Over 1,000 runners took part in the first Women's Right To Run 5K &19K in Seneca Falls Saturday. We'll have the results when they are available.
Seneca Falls was the site of the first Women’s Rights Convention in 1848 and is known as the Birthplace of Women’s Rights.
The course is picturesque and relatively flat. Both races go through the New York Chiropractic College and by the Elizabeth Cady Stanton house. They finished at the future home of The National Women’s Hall of Fame, the Seneca Knitting Mill.
The event is a fundraiser for the renovation and will become The Center for Great Women.
