Runner Protection Program Announcement

We understand that COVID-19 has turned your world upside down as it has ours. Normally we would be seeing you at the Syracuse Half Marathon race expo but clearly that is not happening. We also know that most of you would be purchasing your Mountain Goat Run Registration before the end of the year. We want to provide our runners a way to reduce your risk yet still make plans to participate in our event. We are planning for our event on May 2, 2021 but by now we have learned that plans need to be flexible.  We also realize and understand that you may be hesitant to register early. Today we are introducing the Runner Protection Program; a new race refund policy to help you during the registration decision process. Here is how it works.

1. All runners who register BEFORE December 1, 2020 can receive a 100% refund* on their race registration if they decide to cancel before February 16, 2021.

2. All runners who register BETWEEN December 2, 2020 and January 2, 2021 can receive a 50% refund* on their race registration if they decide to cancel before our February 16, 2021 deadline.

3. All runners who register BETWEEN January 3, 2021 and February 15, 2021 can receive a 30% refund* on their race registration if they decide to cancel before our February 16, 2021 deadline.

4. No Questions Asked.

We want our participants to register at the lowest prices available AND have the peace of mind that they can back out while getting a full/fair refund. It also allows us to plan and purchase accordingly as we approach race weekend.

We hope you will take advantage of the Runner Protection Program. We want to be your Spring 2021 goal race and keep the Mountain Goat Run the iconic event it has become in Syracuse, New York!


*Less the RunSignUp processing fee 


You’ve run up to give the Goat monument a high five…now you can memorialize your Goat experience on a brick paver!  The memorial pavers will mark a path from the park road to the Mountain Goat Monument. Purchase a paver and have it inscribed with your Goat PR or the date of your first Goat or your favorite Goat; as a gift to your running pal with a special message; or as a memorial to a loved one. The pavers will be revealed at the Mountain Goat Hall of Fame Induction on Friday evening before the Sunday Race. Paver Inscription (3 Line limit up to 14 Characters per line. That includes spaces and punctuation). PLEASE PROOF YOUR INSCRIPTION. We are not responsible for any typos or misspellings.  Click here to go to the Mountain Goat Paver Store
