MONTEZUMA HALF MARATHON & 5K 

June 24, 2018 | 8:30 AM

Nestled in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York, the tiny town of Savannah — home to a population of just over 1,700 year-round residents — is set to play host to the Montezuma Half Marathon & 5K in late June this year. A race that will take runners along country roads and the packed dirt trails into the Howland Island Unit of the Northern Montezuma Wildlife Management Area (about 1/3 of the race course).

This race will benefit the important work and efforts of the Friends of the Montezuma Wetlands Complex. The Friends of the Montezuma Wetlands Complex support habitat restoration & public use at The Montezuma Wetlands Complex in upstate New York.

RACE WEATHER & CLIMATE

Located in western, Upstate New York, about 140 miles east of Buffalo and roughly an hours drive from Rochester, Savannah typically sees its warmest weather of the year in July, which has brought record temperatures here as low as 39ºF (in 1932) and as high as 100ºF (in 1936).
