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!
CNY Tour de Cure

Eastwood 5 Mile Run
10 a.m. October 21
Why does your race ROCK? The Eastwood 5 Mile run rocks simply because of our course and distance! A unique 5 mile course winds past the parks of Syracuse’s Eastwood area. It’s the perfect training course for the Mountain Goat run with half the distance and half the hills. The race finishes with a super fast downhill sprint to the finish line. There is no other race like it and you will never have a more satisfying finish line experience!
