“Hooked on Running” Scholarship

The Taconic Road Runners Club believes that young people who are involved in the sport of running experience a healthy lifestyle and a high level of energy and self-confidence. In the spirit of a healthy race, graduating seniors from Northern Westchester and Putnam County are invited to apply for a $1,000 scholarship.  Four scholarships will be awarded.

 Your application must consist of:

  • The 2016 “Hooked on Running” application (see below)
  • An essay (approximately 300 words) on how running has and will continue to affect your life
  • Evidence of acceptance to a post-secondary school (an email from your guidance counselor is acceptable proof)
  • Letter of recommendation from a school faculty member or coach

Incomplete applications will not be considered.

Optionally, you may include other information regarding your commitment to running that you would like us to consider.


Please fill out the attached form by April 15.  We only accept online submissions.
