    - NEXT Series Race:   Virtual Paige's Butterfly Run
      SYRATHON 2020 Update!
    This year’s Syrathon has been unlike any other. We appreciate your dedication to the event throughout these challenging times. With the remainder of the 2020 Syrathon races just down the road, we are pleased to announce that this year’s event is still proceeding! All registrants who want one will still receive a commemorative 2020 Syrathon t-shirt!!!   We are also providing the option to forego this year’s shirt and donate your entry fee to the Syracuse Parks Conservancy to help the Parks Department fund other park-related projects on a limited budget.

    There is still time... and enough available virtual miles... for many of you to complete the 26.2 miles necessary! Any 2020 Syrathon registrant who completes the requirements of virtual races and the free Bonus Miles (see below) according to the rules of each individual race will get credit for those miles toward the 2020 Syrathon Challenge. Those who do so and report their miles to the city will receive the coveted Syrathon medal! Details are still being worked out on how medals will be delivered and how to celebrate our accomplishments, but in the meantime, register for the upcoming 2020 Syrathon races and get those miles in. 

    The remaining races (all being done virtually) are:

    Paige’s Butterfly Run (August 15-20)
    Strathmore Parks Run (September 20)
    Eastwood (October 1-31)
    Inner Harbor (October 4).

    See the registration page for each individual race to participate

    Bonus Fun Runs:  In addition, as in past years, the Syrathon series will include bonus mile fun runs!  These free opportunities for bonus miles will also be done virtually, but can be completed anywhere in the city. Prior to September 20, you may complete one bonus run of up to 4 miles (in place of the Valley Run), and up to two more bonus runs of up to 3 miles each...for up to 10 bonus miles total!   A couple of ideas are to use the Onondaga Creekwalk path, or to visit Upper Onondaga Park on Saturday mornings during Strathmore Saturdays.  From 7am – noon, the Park roads are closed to vehicles.   Simply send us a note saying when, where, and how many miles you’ve logged! Deadline to submit: Sept 20.

    Please contact Chris Abbott ( at Syracuse Parks and Recreation regarding your shirt preference, mileage reporting and further 2020 Syrathon questions.
