New NYS COVID rules as of 3/22/21 allow for 200 person outdoor events.  This event will implement an open start line.  You will be allowed to start anytime between 7:30am-9:00am in a socially distanced manner sending runners off every 10-15 seconds.  The start/finish line will be under the parking garage roof at Mall Entrance #3.  When you arrive, park in any of the available uncovered parking lots and report to the parking garage area to retrieve your bib, timing chip, and shirt.   

You must wear a mask at registration, waiting to start, and after the race, but not during the race.   Masks and hand sanitizer will be available on-site.   

Participants will stage socially distanced (6 feet apart) along the parking garage by the start line.   Stage yourself next to a cone and advance when the participant in front of you advances.  Your time starts when you start.   It will be a VERY RELAXED ATMOSPHERE.

Once you finish your race, you will receive a post race goodie bag and be asked to leave the area.   Sorry, due to COVID, there will not be an on-site Awards Ceremony. Please check for a link to the results.   All awards will be mailed.

Awards will be provided for the following categories:
Overall Male and Female - custom STRC Sweatshirt (purple or gray depending on availability)
Age Group awards:  1st place in M/F 0-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-117

We look forward to seeing you!

Run on,
