Make your way to the starting line at 11 a.m. on October 29th for the 16th Annual Coop Loop 5k and 10k races. The course makes its way in and out of the local streets throughout the village of Cooperstown. Both races will start and end at the Clark Sports Center, 124 County Highway 52, Cooperstown, NY, 13326. Prizes will be given to the top finishers in each age group. This is your chance to run or walk in your Halloween costume too! Wear your very best costume to take home prizes in various categories. Registration for both races can be done on, or before October 29th, but race day registration will be a little pricier. Families up to five people can pre-register together for a discount. Race day registration begins at 9:30 a.m. Rain or shine!
