Join us on Saturday, April 9, 2022 at the NYS Fairgrounds in Syracuse, NY for the inaugural International Taste Fest 5K & 10K running event, presented by Dick's Sporting Goods. The International Taste Festival is a new and exciting event, premiering in the Central New York area, at the New York State Fairgrounds-Exposition Center Sat 4/9 - Sun 4/10. We invite you to make a whole day of it on Saturday April 9th, starting with a run in the morning. Both the 5K and 10K will start and finish at the Expo Center (NYS Fairgrounds) with a portion of the run inside the Fairgrounds as well as on the Empire Trail.
Besides some great swag, registrants will get a ticket into the International Taste Festival, (good for either Saturday or Sunday). Discounted tickets for other family members available prior to the event. Simply email willowrunningNY@gmail.com if you are interested in purchasing additional tickets.
To keep you moving and motivated, there will be live music, with an international flair, on both courses!
An awards ceremony with $4000 in awards certificates will kick off the start of the food festival on that day. There will also be fireworks in evening!
Registration is capped at 225 participants in order to receive a custom shirt and finisher medal. We will keep the no-swag option open up to 300. All participants including those who register under the no-swag banner will receive one free ticket for the International Taste Festival, good for Saturday or Sunday.
The entire 5K will be run inside the Fairgrounds while the 10K will jump on the Empire Trail for a portion of the 6.2 mile run.
MapMyRun Course maps will be uploaded soon.
