The “Seneca7,” a 77.7-mile relay race around Seneca Lake, saw a new course record set on Sunday, April 28. Starting in six staggered waves from 5:45 a.m., with the final group departing at 9 a.m., the event featured enthusiastic participation from a sold out lineup of teams.

The winning group, named “Cornell automatic… still is,” impressively completed the race in 7 hours, 27 minutes, and 2 seconds, surpassing the previous record of 7 hours, 34 minutes, and 2 seconds established in 2017.

The race, now in its twelfth year, has consistently supported local charities, contributing thousands of dollars to over 40 not-for-profit organizations. This year, the Seneca7 raised funds for approximately 25 charitable groups, continuing its tradition of community support through endurance sports.

Organizers celebrated the event’s success and the new record, highlighting the growing popularity and competitive spirit of the Seneca7. The event continues to attract a diverse group of runners committed to both athletic excellence and community service.
