Food and Fun:

While simplified from what we have been able to do in past years, we will have some goodies available for you to grab after your races. Look for the snack tents outside (weather permitting).

For entertainment along the course, we have race pointers at most intersections, and plan to have a variety of musical acts. The Syracuse Highland Pipe Band will be out on the course along with Erin Tapia’s band.

We hope all of the entertainment puts a hop in your step and a smile on your face.

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 indoor bathrooms before and after the race.

Parking:

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.

Packet Pickup and Race Weekend Registration:
Packet Pickup and Registration: Friday, May 13th from 4-6 pm, Cherry Road School near the gym. (Doors are on Granger Road side of the school in the bus loop.)

Race Day Packet Pickup and Registration: 8:00 – 9:30.

Free Kid’s Fun Run:
The PWP DASH is at 9:00 AM for kids 7 years and younger. It will start on Maple Road behind the school and ends in the bus loop at the main finish line. Registration is optional (helps with our planning, but is not required) and all participants will receive a prize or treat.
