Made in the ROC 5K/10K @ Eastman Business Park
Aug 16 @ 8:00 am

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

Amenities Include:

Finisher medals – to commemorate the Original Kodak Brownie camera

First Responders 5K Presented by L3Harris Technologies @ Webster Fireman's Field
Sep 4 @ 6:30 pm
  • The First Responders 5K will recognize the strength, perseverance, and courage of Police Officers, Firefighters, EMTs, 911 Operators and their families in our local community. First Responders put their lives on the line for us every day as they face hardships that most of us will never know. The repetitive negative experience of stressful and potentially traumatic events that First Responders face on a daily basis leaves them particularly vulnerable to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. We hope that this event can raise awareness for PTSD in First Responders, and raise funds for the FRST Agency, a local charity that will provide support, awareness, assets, and services to First Responders seeking assistance in dealing with the effects of PTSD. Join us as we recognize the service and sacrifice of the people who dedicate their lives to protecting ours.

Participation Perks Include:

Post- Race food and live music

2020 CanLake 50 Ultras and MiniCan 25Km @ Finger Lakes Community College
Oct 10 @ 6:30 am – 7:30 pm

CanLake 50 Ultras and MiniCan 25Km is one of the few road ultra marathons in the US and North America. The race features challenging racecourse. Historically, CanLake Ultras have been good to first-time ultra runners averaging 95% finishers rate. It’s probably
50 Mile – Run one big road loop around the most beautiful Finger Lake in Western New York. The course is mostly flat to rolling roads with several major climbs, including locally-famous Bopple Hill.
50K – Run point-to-point over the final 31 miles of the 50-mile route. With significantly less climbing and descending than the first 19 miles of the 50-mile route, the 50K is more friendly for first-time ultra runners and a logical step up from the marathon.
25Km – Not ready to run ultra yet? Try 25Km instead! Run point-to-point over the final 14.5 miles of the 50 Mile/50 Km route after running short out-and-back starting on and using South Lake road. The time limit is 6 1/2 hours. The minimum average speed to complete the 25Km race is 2.07 miles per hour or 25 minutes per mile. Please note that the 25Km race won’t allow pacers and handlers.
Come for the Race and Extend your Stay
Peak fall foliage will create a scenic backdrop for crew, pacers, friends, and family as they accompany you and your fellow ultrarunners along the course to the finish. After the race, why not extend your stay and explore stunningly beautiful Canandaigua and the Finger Lakes Region? Art galleries, museums, historic sites, boat cruises, winery tours, shopping, and our regionally-famous grape pies are all options for you, your friends, and your family to enjoy.
Technical race shirts for every runner. Coffee, juice, and donuts at the start. Twelve well-stocked aid stations featuring GU products. The post-race meal offered to all race participants and volunteers. Free transportation to the 50 Km and 25 Km starts.
