seneca7-logoJoin us for a race inspired by good fortune and a deep body of blue. The Seneca7 will introduce you to the wonders of Seneca Lake: rushing inlets, crashing waterfalls, banks bathed in golden sunlight. All you (and your team) have to do is run around it. 

Here's the skinny. Each team includes 7 members, and each member runs three legs over the course of the day. The race starts in downtown Geneva, NY and concludes in Geneva's Lakefront Park by nightfall - teams have until 7:57pm to make the final exchange point at the north end of Seneca Lake. A staggered start allows your team to begin with similarly-paced teams (and not overwhelm the exchange points).

During their leg, each member of the team must carry a slap bracelet, which must be worn across the finish line to receive an official time. The first teammate runs legs 1, 8, and 15; the second runs legs 2, 9, and 16; and so forth. Each leg is between two and five miles long, with varying terrain and difficulty. Teams are responsible for completing and turning in a scoring sheet at the finish line. (The complete rules can be found here.)

Runner 1 legs 1, 8, 15 3.8mi + 3.3mi + 3.7mi = 10.8mi
Runner 2 legs 2, 9, 16 3.2mi + 2.7mi + 4.0mi = 9.9mi
Runner 3 legs 3, 10, 17 4.3mi + 4.7mi + 2.6mi = 11.6mi
Runner 4 legs 4, 11, 18 3.2mi + 4.3mi + 3.3mi = 10.8mi
Runner 5 legs 5, 12, 19 3.8mi + 5.4mi + 2.6mi = 11.8mi
Runner 6 legs 6, 13, 20 4.6mi + 4.9mi + 2.6mi = 12.1mi
Runner 7 legs 7, 14, 21 4.1mi + 3.1mi + 3.7mi = 10.9mi

Each team must have a way to transport the non-running members from exchange point to exchange point. Start line shuttle instructions describe the procedure for transporting runners from the start to the first three exchange points - this is required for all teams using motorized vehicles. At the end of the race, a special award will be given to the team utilizing the most creative and environmentally-friendly method of transportation. Be green!
