Summer Sizzle

Summer Sizzle 2024 is set for Sunday, June 16th

This Utica Roadrunner classic race will again be hosted at Proctor Park and by our friends at the Masonic Care Community! The Utica First Summer Sizzle enters its 36th year. Celebrate Father's Day on June 16th with the Summer Sizzle Five Mile Road Race! We will also offer a Virtual option for runners who would prefer to do the 5-mile distance on their own.

The Summer Sizzle has a long-standing tradition of being a family event. To celebrate Father's Day, we will have multiple divisions for families to compete in for special awards and prizes.

What do you get? A hot Summer Sizzle shirt with a new fire design from our friends at USA Racing, plus a Summer Sizzle headband to soak up the sweat!
