Everyone is invited to join in this Fun Run through the City of Syracuse. Please remember that the City Streets are open to traffic and that we are all running at our own risk, so be sure to dress festive but also visible. Safety is a Must.

We will meet and start our journey at Freedom of Espresso in Franklin Square, from there we will run past the Dinosaur Barbecue and on to Clinton Square….around the Ice Rink and over to the Christmas Tree. Through Hanover Square to City Hall …. a trip down Bank Alley to Columbus Circle. Then it’s over to the Everson Museum of Art, around the War Memorial on our way to a trip around Armory Circle. (Of Course, stopping for tons of pictures). From the Armory we will work our way back to the Tree and one more photo Shoot in front of the Clinton Square Monument. Then it’s a run back to the Cafe where they will have extended hours for us.

3.5 miles of fun and festive sight seeing in the Beautiful City of Syracuse…Please be safe and dress appropriately.

Weekend/Thanksgiving run opportunities 11/19/16

Hello runners happy Thursday! For this Saturdays group run 11/19/16 we will be running out of Corcoran High School to help Support Chase. (Please read Chase’s story below). Our group will still meet for our group run at 8am at the Corcoran track. The event is at 10 am so you can join us for the group run and stay for the run for Chase or you can help volunteer. Please come out to support Chase.

Who’s in!?!

On November 19, runners from the Syracuse, New York, community and beyond will gather at Corcoran High School to run with Chase Coleman at the “Keep Going…Don’t Stop…Keep Going” fun run, 1.5 miles around the school’s cross-country course and track.

Coleman, a 15-year-old Corcoran freshman, is a runner with autism. He was running in last place in a meet on October 14 in Rochester, when, according to witnesses, a man shoved him to the road, and yelled, “Get out of here.”

Coleman told his mother, Clarise, he wanted to quit the Syracuse West boys cross-country team—a joint program that draws runners from several Syracuse high schools. But Coleman’s teammates and coaches wouldn’t hear of it.

Mike Melfi, one of Coleman’s former coaches, decided to create the run to get Coleman back to the sport. “It just exploded,” Melfi told Runner’s World. “We have a contingent of police and members of the running community coming from Rochester and Buffalo. I’m going to guess there will be 500 to 1,000 people there.”
