Camp Saratoga 5K Series is in full swing! We had a record turnout for the first race on Monday, June 25: 118 people! Come join us every other Monday for the remainder of the series at Wilton Wildlife Preserve. Note: This year the 4th race, August 6, is part of our Grand Prix series, not the 5th and final race. The remaining race dates at Camp Saratoga are July 9, July 23, August 6, and August 20.
The 5K trail run starts at 6:15 p.m. sharp and the series includes the Ironman and Ironwoman award for the male and female runners with the lowest cumulative time for the five races and most improved awards for participants who complete each of the five races. The race is on wooded trails in the beautiful 310-acre Wilton Wildlife Preserve and you can’t beat the $5 entry fee.
Everyone must register, sign a waiver and include an emergency contact (with number) to participate. A raffle is held at the end of each race with many “wonderful” but cheap prizes awarded.
Expect to add 10% to 20% to your best 5K road course time. There are no water stops on the course, but water is available at the finish.

Preserve & Park’s Camp Saratoga. The race course is 5K in length on
wooded trails at the beautiful 310 acre parcel.
Stryder Grand Prix Series
This series encourages Saratoga Stryders members to engage in fun, friendly, and inclusive competition; become more involved in volunteer activities; and actively participate in enticing non-members to join the club. Oh, and you may also win some cool awards in the process!
The start of spring - and into the summer and fall - means it's time to transition back to the Saratoga Spa State Park for Wednesday Night Workouts. The coached and organized workout starts promptly at 6 PM every Wednesday in the grass near the Little Theater parking lot. The last Wednesday of each month is a track workout at Saratoga Springs High School.
