The Keuka Outlet Trail has been added to a list of nine events held around Upstate New York by a Syracuse-area organization this summer and fall.

Willow Running, a branch of Willow Health & Wellness, is planning a half marathon and a 10K for Sunday, Sept. 27 along the trail beginning in the village of Penn Yan and running to Dresden before returning. The 10K will be run on the same course.

Runners who prefer to run a “VirtuREAL” race are also welcome to register and submit their own time anytime before Oct. 24. 

The Keuka Outlet Trail Half Marathon & 10K follows the Minnesetah River (Keuka Outlet), which flows from Keuka Lake to Seneca Lake between Penn Yan and Dresden. 

Entries for the Half Marathon are limited to 250 and the 10K entries are limited to 150. Entry fees are $65 and $45 until Aug. 1. 

A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Friends of the Outlet, the all volunteer non-profit organization that owns and maintains the trail. 

Willow Running is also organizing races in Baldwinsville, Wellesley Island, Savannah, Old Forge, Seneca Falls, and Bridgeport between July 12 and Oct. 24.
