Event Description

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Syracuse Bandana Bolt Bash!
Family 5K and Fall Fest 

All fitness levels welcome. 

At this time, we are excited to offer an in-person event at Green Lakes State Park on Sunday, October 3, 2021!
Since we couldn’t be together for our first 5K in 2020, we’re adding an extra special twist on this year’s race experience - the Bandana Bolt BASH!

This family 5K and fall festival will bring the Syracuse community together on the scenic trails of Green Lakes State Park to make a difference for teens and young adults with cancer. Following the trail run/walk, participants can enjoy food, drinks, crafts, raffles, and fall festivities from local businesses. 

By registering for this hybrid event, you are supporting 13thirty Cancer Connect - Syracuse and our mission to help teens and young adults with cancer live their very best lives - today! Let’s cross the finish line - virtually and in-person - for CNY teens and young adults impacted by cancer!
