Race Description: The Skaneateles 5K Road Race starts on State Street at Austin Park and goes off just minutes before the Labor Day Parade. Runners pass cheering crowds as they run the parade route downhill on State Street, right on Genesee Street, and then right on Jordan Street. The run course proceeds uphill on Jordan Street, past the Firemen's Field Days and then turns right onto Butters Farm Lane. After running up the hill runners turn right and go off-road through the Vargason Nature Trail. Runners exit the Nature Trail into the parking lot of the YMCA, turn right and go around the YMCA building. The course then goes onto the paved loop clockwise around upper Austin Park. Runners will turn onto the grass adjacent to the tennis courts, run along the fence line before running the perimeter of the athletic fields, finishing at the baseball field back at the Firemen's Field Days.
Runners register and get timing chips at the north end of Allyn Arena in Austin Park near the baseball field off Jordan Street. Please give yourself 10 minutes to get your chip and walk up the hill across the Park to the starting line on State Street! There will be an aide station on Jordan Road just past the one-mile mark and another in Upper Austin Park. Participants must be 11 years of age as of 12/31/2013.
