Why Does This Race Rock?

The spring, summer and fall race calendar in Central New York is always jam-packed! With so many great events happening locally, it can sometimes be hard to decide what to do. That's why we've asked Central New York race directors and organizers to tell us "Why Their Race Rocks!" We want to know what about their event sets them apart? What's new? Different? Unique? Special? Fun? 

Here's what they've had to say!
