Back in the spring a lot of 5ks, 10ks and challenging runs were listed as things to do, they sort of died down in the summer with the exception of the Boilermaker. However, the long hot days of summer are coming to a close and that means that the briskness of the fall is at our doorsteps, and we should all take advantage of being outside in still-tolerable weather.
The cultures and heritage around Syracuse is profound. There are people from all over, and the community embraces their traditions with open arms. Oktoberfest is always fun, and it’s even more fun when you’ve got something to work towards!
This 5k is unique, it’s an evening run! I love running at night, there’s no glarring sun, no red faces, the air is cooler, it’s all around a little bit better.
Registration is here, until 9/13 and only $15! The actual race is September 15th at 5pm. I say do it, and if you don’t decide to run the scenic 5k through Baldwinsville you can at least go to cheer on the runners who are going to bust their butts to enjoy one last beer before the official close of summer!
Tip: With your registration you get free admission to the Oktoberfest event earlier that day (more to follow!)
