Important -- No Race-Day Registration!

We're extremely close to the limit of 350. There are still a few spots left for anyone who wants to register on-line by 11 pm (EDT) Thursday, Nov. 3. Also, if not filled up, it will be possible to register at Medved, 3400 Monroe Ave., Rochester, NY on Friday evening, Nov. 4, from 5 pm to 8 pm. But we will not be accepting any registrations on race day.

Course Description

10 km loop course entirely on trails. The course will be marked, turns marked at trail junctions, and traffic cones at the road crossing. The course has several rolling hills. All of the hills are run-able, but there is one short, steep climb halfway through the loop that many participants choose to walk. Estimated 1000 feet of climb per 10k loop. There will be two crossings of park roads per loop. Runners are responsible for their own safety when crossing roads.
