The 22nd running of the OK5K Race in Kinderhook has been postponed until 2021 as a result of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and New York State being on PAUSE.
While we are disappointed by the need to forgo our race this year, the health of our community of runners and neighbors and friends is of the utmost importance.
Participants and sponsors who have already signed up to run the 2020 event can choose from the following options:
All proceeds from the OK5k Race are donated to local non-profit, charitable organizations. Last year, the OK5k Race donated $10,200 to 16 different organizations. In its 20 years, the race has donated $121,868 to 30 different organizations. All of those contributions go back directly to the Northern Columbia community, benefiting groups such as Boy Scouts, school clubs, fire departments, libraries, food pantries, fraternal organizations, youth organizations, rescue squads, historical societies, trails and fitness. Please continue to support this truly community-based event. It's not just about running.
Along with our major sponsor -- Kinderhook Bank -- dozens of local businesses, organizations, and individuals make the OK5k possible. Please visit our sponsor's page and support them when you're in the area.
