Registration is now open for 2016 Beat Beethoven!

Mark your calendar NOW to join the Capital Region’s first and best 5K for the arts in Schenectady’s Central Park.

Thanks to the support of media sponsor WMHT-FM, and with ongoing support from Berkshire Bank, Vent Fitness, Stewart’s Shops, Lia Auto Group, Price Chopper, SI Group, CDPHP, NBT Bank, and State Farm – Amy Aldrich, the Schenectady Symphony Orchestra will offer runners and walkers the chance to once again take on Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony!

Dig out your running shoes, dust off your sweats, and plan to race along to the thundering sounds of Beethoven’s mighty Symphony No. 5. Cross the finish line before the music ends and you’ll win a free ticket to the Schenectady Symphony’s opening concert on October 30, 2016.

Fun for runners and walkers of all abilities, with age group prizes and t-shirt contests. The course is fast and flat, for runners looking to set a PR. There’s enough time for non-runners to get fit: try the Couch to 5K program.BEAT BEETHOVEN 2015 ROUTE SMALLER

    • Hi Megan, so sorry we didn’t see this earlier. Yes, you may bring a jogging stroller as long as you are diligent about keeping it out of the path of other runners. The course is a figure 8, run twice, so it is imperative that runners/walkers are alert to other participants
