Ithaca XC Fundraiser - June 4, 8-10 a.m

Thanks in no small part to the FLRC, we are fortunate to have an exceptional youth running community in the Finger Lakes region. You may have encountered these athletes running alongside (or, in my case, running past you) at a MITHICAL MILER workout, local 5K race, indoor or outdoor track meet, or on a training run.

If you wish to support Ithaca youth running at the modified, JV, and varsity levels, the Ithaca Cross Country Booster Club is hosting a fundraiser pancake breakfast (“Short Stacks for a Tall Cause”) at Applebee’s, 2300 N. Triphammer Rd, on June 4 from 8-10 a.m. Cost is $10 per ticket and includes a meal of pancakes, bacon, juice, and/or coffee. A great way to fuel up for a run, bike, or hike!

If you can’t make it in person, donations are also accepted. Funds help to support race-day snacks, team gear, such as tents for rainy or sunny days, and travel to special competitions such as the Manhattan College Invitational and Nike Cross Regionals (NXR).

Thanks for considering it!


Thanks for spreading the word on this! We’ll be there and would love to see more running friends there too!
