Course Information

We may have to continue to be socially distant but as a running community we can still be active and challenge ourselves!  May 5 is Cinco de Mayo - a time to celebrate and have fun!  The Utica Roadrunners have a developed a great event that begins May 6 and continues for 15 days until May 20.  It is the First Annual Five After Five Virtual Challenge!  Starting Wednesday, May 6 - which would have been the day of the Utica Roadrunners first Development Run- runners and walkers will be asked to meet any of the following challenges:

  • Run/Walk 5k or 5 miles every day for all 15 days.
  • Run/Walk a total of 50k (31 miles) or 50 miles over the 15 day period.

Go the extra "mile(s)" and qualify for our special six pack award and win a six-pack of your favorite Saranac beverage.  21 and over of course for any alcoholic beverages!  We will be announcing ways to get your SIX-PACK on May 5.  We will be planning on giving away a six-pack every day for 15 days!  Stay tuned for more details!

After each run/walk, participants are encouraged to share their run with a selfie, pic of the course, and/or a pic of their distance and time for each day.  At the conclusion of the event, all runners and walkers will report their 15 day challenge to the infamous UR Police through the special Facebook Event that will be created on the UR Facebook page!  For those of you without Facebook, you will be able to submit your miles directly through RunSignup or a Strava link we will be setting up.
