New this year, the Save Our Switchbacks is
expanding our reach from just the trails to include the trees
that encompass the switchbacks. Earth Day is the following
Monday and Arbor Day is the following Friday. We have entered
into a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation to preserve
both the trails and the switchbacks, giving the greater Utica
community one of the best trails around. Through this
partnership, we are awarding age group winners with White Pine
trees, donating $1 for each registered runner to the Arbor Day
Foundation, and using the profits from the race to grow and
maintain the switchbacks.
Men's & Women's winners receive $50 gift cards from The Sneaker Store!
Men's & women's 2nd and 3rd receive free entry into
the Summer Sizzle 5 miler!
New Balance Technical race tee shirts!
Start and finish near the Parkway ski chalet.
