     The Syracuse Parks Conservancy joins Syracuse Parks and Recreation, along with Presenting Sponsors  Fleet Feet Sports, the C&S Companies, Dannible & McKee, LLP, Hancock and Estabrook, LLP, and the Tipperary Hill Neighborhood Association, to again bring together eight established road races, all based in the City of Syracuse, into this unique series. Syrathon’s eight race routes showcase Syracuse’s incredible and historic parks system 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.

     
    Syrathon is made possible by the support of its sponsors, and because of the tremendous support and efforts of the individual race committees. Each of the Series races are well-established because of the hard work and creative, thoughtful planning of individual race committee.  Each race has its own flavor, and the dedication of all race volunteers brings great benefit to respective city neighborhoods and to so many charitable causes.
