Description

Join runners and walkers from age 3 to age 90 who travel to the Syracuse Festival of Races each year from 25 or more U.S. states and Canada.  Whether you're a first-time road race participant or an experienced racer, you'll enjoy the atmosphere, the course, the runner amenities, and the opportunity to participate in an event where distance running history is made annually.

Go for a season best or personal best; team up with a family member on one or more of our nine categories of two-person family teams; race the 5K and then jump into the 3K Fun & Fitness Run to celebrate with a couple additional cooldown miles; witness past Olympians or national and world record holders in action; help to raise money for your favorite non-profit organization; or simply enjoy covering a few miles with family and friends on beautiful Meadowbrook Drive. 

Whether you're trying to run a finishing time under 15:00 or under 45:00, the Festival offers you the best opportunity to achieve your 5K performance goals.  The Syracuse Festival of Races 5K course (USATF Certification #NY12118JG) is nationally renowned for being runner-friendly and record-eligible.  In addition to being USATF-certified, the SFoR course is the only road race course in Central New York that has been verified by the Road Running Technical Council of USATF.   To admire the dozens of performances on the SFoR course that have surpassed listed national and world 5K record and bests--including the four 5K American records set here in 2016, visit: http://www.festivalofraces.com/history.html.

Come see why the Festival has been--for nearly a quarter of a century--the best running around.  Come enjoy amazing!
