The Sights & Sounds

Feel the energy around every corner. Celebrate the goodness Rochester has to offer.  The breathtaking views along the historic Genesee River. The overwhelming crowd support from neighbors and volunteers. The perfect mix of elevation changes to keep you challenged. 

The inspiration from participants alongside you. The Rochester 1/2 Marathon & 5K has it all.

The Rochester Half Marathon & 5K is a sight to see.  The Half Marathon starting at Maplewood Park heading north to Charlotte via the beautiful Turning Point Trail along the Genesee River towards the O'Rorke Bridge overlooking Lake Ontario and the majesticness of the harbor.  Heading south along the festive neighborhoods of Irondequoit then towards Seneca Park Zoo with another fantastic bridge overlook.  Continue south along the Genesee River through historic Maplewood Park then towards the lower falls over the RGE Bridge to the final stretch of the High Falls District toward the final energy filled finish line stretch in front of Innovative Field - Home of the Red Wings.

The 5K follows along the final 3.1 miles the half marathon so 5Kers can also experience the final two bridges and fall overlooks finishing at Innovative Field.  The kids race starts right in the heart of High Falls Industrial District where once upon a time the Flower City utilized the falls and the river to help build Rochester.  Kids too get to experience the same robust finish line as the other two races.
