Boots and Ellen (Owners of YellowJacket Racing) got to go on a tour of the property, so unique and to them beautiful in its own way. Some spots have so much piping going between buildings it almost feels like you are in a tunnel. The property was (and still is) the home of Eastman Kodak, among several other corporations. Once upon a time, this property housed much of Kodak’s manufacturing, research and industry. This property was like a forbidden land for runners. Unless you worked on the property you don’t normally get to see the expansive industry that occurs there for Rochester. And now it’s gates are opening to runners and walkers at Made in the ROC 5K/10K. Today, known as Eastman Business Park, is the home to various industries including energy, food & beverage, chemical engineering, pharmaceutical manufacturing, plastics, roll to roll manufacturing and photonics. It employs thousands and creates products and services right here in Rochester, NY.
Both courses will run UNDER Ridge Road. They’ll go past George Eastman’s Memorial where his ashes are buried, past Kodak’s oldest building, along with several other corporations. This course exhibits beauty via its industrial and creatively engineered buildings and infrastructure. You can feel the productivity, imaginativeness and inventiveness throughout the campus.
The idea is to celebrate all that has been created in the ROC in the past, present and future. #madeintheroc
Finisher medals – to commemorate the Original Kodak Brownie camera
