Organiser's Description

The fall classic is back once again this Sunday, September 22nd 2024!  This year we are running 50 years strong.  Join the Utica Roadrunners for the downtown 5k or the scenic switchbacks 14k.  We are proud to announce that the 14K has been selected as a 2024 RRCA Eastern Region Championship Event!
In addition to those sweet shirts, finishers will receive a special 50th Anniversary medal.  There will be awards for overall winners and age group winners for the 5k and 14k.  If you are interested in volunteering or being a sponsor, please send us a message.
The 5k course starts on a light incline for the first half mile. TURN RIGHT at the traffic circle to continue on to the 5k.  The course then flattens out for the rest of the mile (mile 1 is near the corner of Oswego St.). The start of the second mile inclines slightly and finishes flat. The remaining 1.1 mile is pretty much the first mile in reverse.
The 14k course starts out the same as the 5k, on a light incline for the first half mile. TURN LEFT at the traffic circle to continue on the 14k. The course then flattens out for the rest of the mile. Mile two continues up a slight incline and starts up a slightly tougher incline up the Parkway. Mile three works it's way up Valley View and into the park. The next three miles are the scenic but challenging switchbacks and park roads. The next mile is mostly downhill. The rest of the race is the more casual downhill of Oneida and Genesee Streets with a fast finish.
See you at the start line!
