The Stockade-athon is popularly recognized as the oldest "major" 15K road race in the USA. Starting in 1976 this classic 9.3 miler has become the highlight event on the fall racing season in upstate New York. New England Runner selected the Stockade-athon as its 2005 "Race of the Year."
The Stockade-athon is a race for the runners - it has always been that way - I feel "special" when I enter the race, knowing that you and your committees are doing your best to make each and every runner feel that he/she is an important part of the day.
