“S’cary Leg Runners” Anticipate Landis 5K

By Gail Browning

As the August 8 peren­ni­al” 5K For­est Run / Walk approach­es, the S’cary Leg Run­ners” are step­ping up to coor­di­nate the ninth annu­al event.

The run­ning com­mu­ni­ty in the Schoharie region has a his­to­ry of par­tic­i­pat­ing and sup­port­ing one anoth­er in local run­ning events. Four area run­ners, Pam and Chad Newell, Carl Urrey, and David Roy, want­ed to run dis­tance events as a team, each of the run­ners run­ning a leg” in the race. Hence the team name, S’cary Leg Run­ners” was created.

The group began infor­mal­ly and grad­u­al­ly evolved into a 501c3 non-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion. The mem­bers are active in races spon­sored by the Albany Run­ning Exchange, the Hud­son-Mohawk Run­ners, and the Ful­ton-Mont­gomery Road Run­ners. They orga­nize the 5K Teach­ers Run in Schoharie, the Lan­dis 5K, as well as sev­er­al oth­er races in the Schoharie area.

The Lan­dis race has become a favorite with run­ners, both novice and sea­soned, and walk­ers too. The course tra­vers­es sev­er­al of the Arboretum’s trails, rang­ing from wood­land to fields with rolling hills and offer­ing spec­tac­u­lar views of the Schoharie Val­ley. The race begins at 9 AM. Reg­is­tra­tion infor­ma­tion is avail­able on-line on the Lan­dis Arbore­tum web­site (www​.lan​dis​ar​bore​tum​.org). Offi­cial tee-shirts are guar­an­teed for par­tic­i­pants who are reg­is­tered by August 1.

The S’cary Leg Run­ners encour­age fam­i­lies and kids to get involved and in shape – and walk or run in the Lan­dis 5K.
