3-5pm Canandaigua Operations Center (5500 Airport Rd., Canandaigua)
Saturday, May 12th
7am @ Crosswinds Church
With rolling hills, beautiful vistas, a quaint hamlet, and five miles run along the lake, our route is not flat but it's never boring! Water stops are located every 2 miles, and GU is available at mile 6.
Course Time Limit: Because of logistics, the course is officially open until 11am. After that time volunteers may not be present along the route or at water stops. Official race timing will continue until the last runner crosses the finish line.
This year's race moves outside of City limits to take advantage of wide country roads, the quaint hamlet of Cheshire, and beautiful miles alongside Canandaigua Lake. The race begins and ends at Crosswinds Weslyan Church on Middle Cheshire Rd. just South of Rt. 5 & 20 in Canandaigua. The route runs along vast fields, through a friendly development, and of course along beautiful Canandaigua Lake. The terrain is anything but flat (trust us, nothing near Canandaigua Lake is completely flat) but includes many rolling hills and only one short incline at the finish line.
While many runners said that this route was tough, they also were surprised to report that they set a PR! We pride ourselves on having the BEST volunteers who line the entire route, encouraging participants all the way to the finish line.
