2021 is here and we are ready for LIVE RACING!  After last year's pandemic made us all change our running goals, we are now trying to provide ways to run and race together!  The Utica Roadrunners are happy to announce that we will be holding our Four Race Challenge!

Like everything else, we have had to adapt and make sure we provide safe opportunities for our runners that stay within the city, state and federal guidelines.  We are providing each runner six options to complete the Four Race Challenge this year.  Runners that deferred their entry from 2020 are already registered for this year.  You simply have to manage your registration by choosing the four events you wish to participate in!  After you have received a special code, you can enter.  If you would like to take advantage and sign up for five or all six, you can add those races and receive our special introductory rate.

Runners have until June 1 to register for our Four Race Challenge for the amazing price of $100.  Please understand that our first two events will be our Virtual Events and they will conclude by that June 1st deadline.  Runners also have the opportunity to receive a substantial discount by registering for the Four Race Challenge as the price will be locked at $100.  We will keep our Virtual Events at a very low introductory price until March 1st, if runners are hoping to complete the Six Pack!

The Events we will feature for our Four Race Challenge are:


2- FIVE AFTER FIVE- May 6-20

3-THE SUMMER SIZZLE Five Mile Road Race-USATF ADK Event!-Proctor Park, Utica, NY - Sunday, June 20th

4-SAVE OUR SWITCHBACKS 7.5k-South Woods, Utica, NY - Sunday, August 15th

5-FALLING LEAVES 5k and 14k Road Races-An Official Boilermaker Kick-Off Event!- Utica, NY - Sunday, September 26th

6-SKELETON RUN 5k Trail Race-An Official Boilermaker Cool Down Event! We hope to return to Deerfield Town Park - Sunday, October 17th

Please understand we are still in uncertain times and we rely on the cooperation of the City of Utica to gain our permits.  Therefore our LIVE events will all have Virtual and VirtuReal options.  In the case we are not allowed to have any our events, you will be entered in our Virtual event base.  Please understand that we may have to use a wave start or a staggered start with our LIVE races.  In those cases we will offer runners options to run in the wave or times of their choice.  In the case that we have to cap our numbers per city and state restrictions, we will do our best to give every runner who registers the opportunity to run the event LIVE. There will be no refunds or deferrals into 2022.  


-You will get ALL the SWAG from each event you enter.  That includes medals, shirts, and any other giveaways.

-You will get a custom and one of a kind Four Race Challenge Shirt.

-You will also get a magnificent Four Race Challenge Medal created by our friends at USA Racing.

RUNNERS can get their Four Race Challenge shirt at the Summer Sizzle packet pick-up

RUNNERS can get their custom medals once they have completed their Four Races.  Medals will be available starting at the completion of the Save Our Switchbacks race.

Once again, all runners who deferred their 2020 entry will be getting a special code by email.  That code will serve as a $106 coupon that will cover the Four Race Challenge entry and processing fee.  The four live races will not open registration until April starting with the Summer Sizzle on April 1  All those looking for more information about our virtual events can find the information here:
