Dear Rochester Marathon Participants,

Thank you for your patience as we work through the myriad of logistics for Rochester Marathon with the various municipalities.  COVID-19 has certainly placed this event and all events into a unique circumstance, as you are aware.  To keep up with safety standards we have decided not to re-open registration to keep numbers at a safe level to accommodate the mass gathering quantity mandate. So if you are getting this, you are very lucky to be registered. 

We're also aware that you may not be comfortable participating in a live race and will be offering two virtual options for you. We've recently started using the RaceJoy app. We will be offering the actual Rochester Marathon course on the app, where you will be able to run the real course on your own time while receiving audio cheers and cues. We will also offer a Run Anywhere option, where you will receive similar audio cues, but can choose to complete the distance where you feel comfortable.

  Please stay tuned for future emails as we learn more from municipalities, the various options and what safety guidelines we will be following for the race. Thank you so very much for your patience!!  And please stay well!!

Boots, Ellen & YellowJacket Racing
