Winter 5K Series 2022

The 2022 Chautauqua Striders Winter 5K Series begins on Saturday January 8, at Chautauqua Harbor Hotel in Celoron. Registration begins at 9:00 AM, with the race starting at 10:00 AM. Runners can sign up for the whole series, or for individual races.

This 5-race series is a 5K run which takes place on the roads of Celoron. Funds from the series support the Athletic Club and Athletic programming at Chautauqua Striders.

The Chautauqua Striders Winter 5K Series is a fun (and freezing!) “age-graded” race series, with races starting and finishing at the Chautauqua Harbor Hotel. Age-grading levels the playing field for all runners, just as a “handicap” is intended to do in bowling and golf. It provides the runner with the percentage value of an “ideal” or best time for his or her age and gender. Rankings for the series are calculated using the runner’s best 4 times.
