SYRATHON brings together 8 established road races, all based in the City of Syracuse and spaced throughout the calendar year, into this unique road race series! Syrathon’s eight race routes showcase Syracuse’s incredible and historic parks systems as participants journey through a number of wonderful city neighborhoods. Since 2009, the Series has encouraged, for both beginners and seasoned runners, healthful physical activity year-round, while promoting the sights and sounds of city life!  In 2020, Syrathon adapted to the challenges of Covid-19 and became a mostly virtual series.  In 2021, while it may be too soon to know for certain which format (or date) some of the races may ultimately utilize, be assured that all race committees are excited to put on exciting events- in support of great causes-  in whatever form they may take. Syrathon will take on an exciting hybrid format in 2021!
The Syrathon Series Challenge again will challenge registered participants to accumulate at least 26.2 race miles over the course of the Series. Those who meet the challenge are known as Syrathoners, and will have earned the coveted Syrathon Medal!  All registered participants receive a cool race shirt!
