The Summer Sizzle

To Be Announced Utica, NY 13502 US
Summer Sizzle Postponed/Four Race Challenge Still On

New Date: To Be Announced

As race director of The Summer Sizzle with approval of the Utica Roadrunner Board of Directors, we have decided to postpone the race that was to be held on Sunday, June 21.  It would be irresponsible, even if we were allowed, to hold a race in June when the Boilermaker was postponed from its July date.  We are looking at new dates and even will consider holding the Summer Sizzle in December, calling it "The Santa Sizzle" or "Summer Blizzard".  

The Four Race Challenge is still on.  Dates have been changed and I am aware that some of your personal race calendars will have conflicts.  The Save our Switchbacks now scheduled for August 16 will be the first race of the challenge.  The Falling Leaves and Skeleton Run remain on schedule.  People registered for the Summer Sizzle will have the option to run it virtually or run it on the new date when that is established.  For those registered for The Four Race Challenge, we are looking into offering new and additional items to the package.

Our first priority is and always will be the safety of our runners and members.  As new options become available and a new date is established we will let you know immediately.  Thank you for your understanding and patience during these unprecedented times.

Jim Mott-Summer Sizzle Race Director
