Lucy Town Half Marathon and 5K | In 2011 Chautauqua Striders set a goal to add a half marathon race to their Runner of the Year series. Several 13.1 mile courses were designed and partnerships sought. Ironically, the Lucy-Desi Center for Comedy was looking to start such a race at the same time. In May of 2012 Lou Deppas (Lucy–Desi Center for Comedy) and David Reinhardt (Chautauqua Striders) met and both organizations began a joint race venture. Soon after the Jamestown Savings Bank Arena was contacted as third partner and host venue. A Steering Committee comprised of the organizations’ staffs along with members of the business and running communities was formed in September of 2012. The Steering Committee established the event’s name as “Lucy Town Half Marathon & 5K” and logo design.
