The Stockade-athon is Back! Rejoice!

by Christine Bishop

One of the great 15K Races in America, the Stockade-athon, will be roaring back on November 14, Sunday, at 8:30 a.m. in downtown Schenectady. The Stockade-athon covers a 9.3-mile loop that runs through the historic Stockade District of Schenectady and finishes at City Hall. It is one of the most popular races on the HMRRC schedule. Top runner Anthony Giuliano said this about the course, “I enjoy the new course with the uphill climb in the first half and the fast 5K downhill to the finish.”
