The Syracuse Parks Conservancy is proud to join the Syracuse Parks Department to present Syrathon 2020! SYRATHON brings together now EIGHT established road races, all based in the City of Syracuse and spaced throughout the calendar year, into this unique road race series! Syrathon’s races showcase Syracuse’s beautiful and historic parks system as participants journey through a number of wonderful city neighborhoods. Since 2009, the Series Challenge has encouraged, for both beginners and seasoned runners, healthful physical activity year-round, while promoting the sights and sounds of city life
Syrathon is made possible by the support of its sponsors, and of course, because of the tremendous support and efforts of the individual race committees. Each of the Series races are well-established because of the hard work and creative, thoughtful planning of each individual race committee. Each race has its own flavor, and the dedication of all race volunteers brings great benefit to respective city neighborhoods and to so many charitable causes.
