The Site:
Cherry Road School (200 Cherry Road, Syracuse, 13219) a grade school in the Westhill School District,  is located off West Genesee Street, near Parsons Drive in Westvale. The 1 Mile Color Run and the 5K will start and finish in the bus loop on Maple Road. Runners have access to the gym and indoor and outdoor bathrooms before and after the race.


There are parking spots available at the front of the building on Cherry Road. There is an additional small parking area as well as street parking on Maple Road behind the school. Street parking is allowed on all surrounding streets, keeping in mind, Emergency Vehicles have an easier time getting through when parking is contained to ONE side of the street. Please do not park on the Race Route or in the bus loop.
