8th Annual BASE Race 5K/10K

Saturday, May 25, 2019 - 9:00am


The Hall of Fame’s newest hit is embarking on an extended “run” in Cooperstown, the popular BASE Race is being held on Memorial Day Weekend, with the same course and lineup, as part of Hall of Fame Classic Weekend festivities.

The National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum, along with Cooperstown’s Clark Sports Center, will present the seventh annual BASE Race charity runs – a 5k fun run and competitive 10k events -- on Saturday, May 25 – starting and ending at historic Doubleday Field and featuring courses that wind through scenic Cooperstown and along the warning track of the historic ballpark. The race events benefit the Museum’s “Be A Superior Example” program promoting healthy lifestyle choices for individuals of all ages.

Fans are encouraged to support their favorite major league team as part of the 2019 BASE Race, as selected former major league players will be a part of the race activities, as the lead-off event to a full day of programming for the Hall of Fame Classic on May 25.

Registration for the 2019 BASE Race is $25 and $55 for families. Each registered runner will receive a finishers medal (for the first 300 runners to register), goodie bag, and a free general admission ticket to the Hall of Fame Classic. On race day, registration will be $30 for individuals and $65 for families. Additional details are available by calling the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum at 607-547-0329.

Proceeds from the BASE Race support outreach for BASE, the Hall of Fame’s educational initiative which promotes the concepts of healthy lifestyle choices to a worldwide audience, educating students about the dangers of performance-enhancing substances.
