Save the date for Saturday August 19th to either come down and race or witness the racing action – buckle in for an exciting evening!
Just like the Criterium, both amateur and elite athletes will compete in separate 1-mile races. These races will be on the same course that the cyclists use with the highlight of the evening being the Elite Women’s race (with a purse of $2500) and an Elite Men’s race (also with a purse of $2500). Come see some of the fastest runners in the Northeast compete on the streets of the City of Rochester!
There are 9 corners on the course, a slight downhill after the start and an uphill just bast the half mile point. The course is wide and fairly smooth for a City street. All runners will complete 1 complete lap of the course with the finish roughly 100 meters past the start line (please note that the start line is NOT the finish line- you have to pass over it because the course is .95 mile in length, hence the extra 100 meters). There are 500M, 300M, 200M, 100M and 50M to-go markers on the course.
