Runners follow what is roughly a clockwise, out-and-back loop course through the city that starts and finishes at downtown Rochester’s Blue Cross Arena and features stretches along the Genesee River, as well as through Riverside Park and the University of Rochester campus. The course crosses over the river twice, the first time shortly after the 2nd mile marker and then again between mile markers 12 and 13, just before heading into the finish line.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
