Sitrin's Stars & Stripes Run-Walk

New Hartford, NY

Sitrin's Stars & Stripes Run~Walk is going virtual this year!

Participants of all ages and abilities can run, walk, bike ride, wheelchair road race, hike, swim, or even kayak to complete their 2 or 3.1 mile distances. Please follow safe social distancing while participating.

The 9th Annual Sitrin Stars & Stripes Run~Walk for our Nation’s Heroes is proudly sponsored by Adirondack Bank.

What will your entry fees and donations support?

Sitrin relies on proceeds from the Stars & Stripes Run~Walk to fund its Military Rehabilitation Program, which provides comprehensive and complimentary care to post-9/11 veterans. Sitrin’s program has been instrumental in helping veterans who have post-traumatic stress, depression, spinal cord injuries, amputations, suicidal ideations, and other combat-related conditions.

The entry fee is $25, and you will receive a Stars & Stripes commemorative dog tag and t-shirt.
