5k Canceled

The Ballston Spa CSD 5th Annual Scotties Stampede re-scheduled for Saturday August 1, 2020 has now been canceled.  Guidance/clearance for events such as this has yet to be released from the state level.  Regretfully, to ensure the safety of all involved, the race will not be held as hoped this year.  We look forward to hosting a race in 2021!

Those who have already registered may elect to donate their registration fee to the Ballston Spa Partnership for Innovation in Education Fund or request a refund by emailing kelliott@bscsd.org by July 31, 2020. 

Rescheduled! The 5th Annual Scotties Stampede 5k Run/Walk will be held August 1, 2020.

We are so excited to announce that the 5th Annual Scotties Stampede 5k Run/Walk has been rescheduled for Saturday, August 1 at 9:00 am! The race will be held with the appropriate precautions as long as the Capital Region has advanced to phase 4 of reopening as anticipated. As in year’s past, the race will start and end at the district’s tennis courts on Garrett Road.   While the primary goal of the 5k is to bring our community together for a fun, fitness event and encourage students and families to participate in healthy and active lifestyles, it’s also a great fundraiser. All proceeds from the event support the district’s Ballston Spa Partnership for Innovation in Education Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region. Please find registration details for the event at http://www.scottiesstampede.org/registration/ or call 518-884-7195 x1369.
