Ellis Medicine Cardiac Classic

November 25, 2021

The 2021 Cardiac Classic is planning to be back in person on Thanksgiving morning, Thursday, November 25! Due to Covid-19 still being a threat in our community we will only be having the 5K Road Race this year (No Wellness Walk or Kid Fun Run). The course will remain the same, with the start and finish line being at the entrance to the Pavilion.

The Cardiac Classic 5K Road Race will start at 9AM!

Unlike in year's past, runners will not have access to the pavilion as we try to urge social distancing. Water and snacks will be available on picnic tables throughout area where the race will start.

If you are feeling under the weather, or were exposed to Covid-19 we politely ask that you do not attend the in person event and consider running the race virtually. 

While we are optimistic to host the 5K Road Race in person, there’s no certainty as to the circumstances we may encounter heading into Thanksgiving. We will keep our website and social media channels updated on any decisions that are made regarding the race.  In the event that the Cardiac Classic changes to completely virtual event, runners will have the option to roll their entry fees over to 2022.

Sunday, November 21 from 11AM - 2:30PM

Packet pick-up will be at the McClellan Street Health Center, 600 McClellan Street, Schenectady, NY.
