Empire State Senior Games 5k and 10k

The Empire State Senior Games 5k and 10k road races are being held at SUNY Cortland on Thursday 6/16 (5k) and Friday 6/17 (10k) both at 9:00am. If anyone is interested in volunteering let me know (zzzbarclay@gmail.come), we are in need of a few course marshals to direct runners. If you are 50 and over you can run, details are here: Senior Games Event Information - 2022 - Empire State Senior Games. Note: the course map online in incorrect, we are in the process of creating a new (and better one). And rumor has it that Katherine Switzer will be running again this year.

Good news regarding a new course. Running the same approx 3/4 mile stretch 4 times for the 5K and then another 8 times the next day for the 10K got a little tedious. You didn’t need many course marshals though!

We had to keep the course on campus roads, so there will still be multiple loops for the 10K but hopefully the new route is less tedious! Let me know what you think.
