Join us for a race inspired by good fortune and a deep body of blue. The Seneca7 will introduce you to the wonders of Seneca Lake: rushing inlets, crashing waterfalls, banks bathed in golden sunlight. All you (and your team) have to do is run around it.

Here is some additional information about the event, drawn from their website's FAQ page:
Everything You Need to Know ...that somebody else already asked!
Can my team have fewer than 7 runners? We're sorry, but no. We require that each team have exactly 7 runners to ensure the fairness of the race and to increase the safety for all participants.
What happens if one of my teammates can't make it? Can we still race? Your team has until March 1 to submit a complete roster and sign the online waivers. After that date you can make substitutions, but it must be done at packet pickup on Saturday afternoon. The new runner(s) must be present to sign the event waiver. Changes to your team's start wave are at the discretion of the race director.
Does my entire team have to go to the pre-race briefing? No, your entire team does not need to be present, although teams are encouraged to attend. At least one team member must be present, however.
Does everyone have to be present at the start of the race? Yes, your entire team needs to be at The Smith Opera House (downtown Geneva) for check-in prior to your start wave. Your first runner then proceeds to the start line, the second runner boards the shuttle bus, and all remaining runners get ready to depart via your team's vehicle(s).
Isn't it going to be congested at the first few exchange points? We're going to alleviate the crunch at the beginning of the race by staging shuttle busses to serve the first two exchange points. Please read the shuttle instructions for more details.
If our team is riding bikes, do we have to follow the shuttle instructions? No - you get to stop at every exchange point. Only teams with motorized vehicles need to follow the shuttle instructions for the first few exchange points.
Are substitutions allowed during the race if someone gets sick or injured? Yes, but only for medical reasons. If a teammate cannot complete a given leg, another member of the team is allowed to jump in and complete that leg. The injured runner is no longer eligible to participate in subsequent legs. Any teammate is allowed to fill in for the injured runner, but the pre-designated rotation for all other legs must continue to be followed.
Why 77.7 miles? Curiously, that's how far it is around Seneca Lake! And it does lend a certain luckiness to the proceedings.
