Mary E. Seymour Memorial Free Library and Cassadaga Branch Library have teamed up with Wilson Endurance Sports to raise money for our Solar Panel Construction Project during the Cassadaga Lakes Running Festival!

About this event:

Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, and 1 mile races in Cassadaga, New York on Sunday, May 30, 2021.

Enjoy this challenging course as it rolls along the three lakes of Cassadaga. Flat beginning and ending with a whole lot of really big bumps in the middle.

The Mary E Seymour Memorial Free Library of Stockton & Cassadaga is in need of funds for a large construction project. Grants have been obtained and the work should start soon but there is still a large amount of local funds needed. This is a fundraiser event to help with those costs.

Race t-shirts, freshly catered meal, fully stocked aid stations, STBC Beer Zone, and fire pit if it’s a chilly day. Massage therapist on site.

Did we mention that this course is hilly??  Train for the hills and challenge yourself with those steep ups and downs, especially for the Half and full Marathon.   The course is on paved roads the entire way.  No cut off times!
