Why should you run this race? Read what other’s are saying!

“My favorite part of this race was the overall positive and warm feeling that a small community charity event can offer. I felt the dedication and teamwork of this organization. They made everyone feel like a winner. At the end they held a fun run for families, children and those with special needs. These are the kind of events that make me feel proud to be a member of the running community. I was very grateful to be a part of this event and will sign up again next year.”

The scenic course takes you through the heart of downtown Oswego. Water will be available at the 1 and 2 mile markers. Start line is at the south edge of Franklin Street.

Walkers, baby joggers and strollers must start behind the runners. Pets, bicycles, skates of any kind, scooters, skateboards or other wheeled vehicles (except wheel chairs) are prohibited. Service dogs welcome.
