The PWP race committee is thrilled to bring you an in-person event on May 16, 2021. This event will not include our typical slate of events, and will follow CDC, NYS and Onondaga County covid safety guidelines. Our goal is to invite the community to participate in the safest manner possible, and we need your cooperation to make that happen.   Proceeds to benefit the St. Charles Food Pantry and we will collect non perishable food items on race day.
