*ALERT: Special Notice for Rochester ½, 5K & Kids Race*

Dear Athletes,

As many know, our events especially this one cannot be done without the efforts and support of our First Responders.  We at Fleet Feet & YellowJacket Racing, rely heavily on all the departments to ensure the safety of all athletes on the course.  They are integral to your success in getting to the finish line.

This past week, the Rochester Fire Department lost one of their own unexpectedly.  Elvis Reyes, a Rochester Fire Fighter dedicated 20 years of his life serving the community, and passed that love of service to his two sons who are also RFD Fire Fighters.

The ROC Kids 13.1 Program is LIVE for kids ages 5-12 or they can choose the Kids 1/2 Mile

Feel the energy around every corner. Celebrate the goodness Rochester has to offer.  The breathtaking views along the historic Genesee River. The overwhelming crowd support from neighbors and volunteers. The perfect mix of elevation changes to keep you challenged.

The inspiration from participants alongside you. The Rochester 1/2 Marathon & 5K has it all.



*Please Note: For 2022, for a multitude of reasons we are only hosting the half marathon, 5K and Kids 1/2 Mile.  While we are dissapointed we can not host the two day affair to include the full marathon and relays we hope you can understand this decision.  Like 2021, we know the event will be fantastic regardless and we look forward to celebrating Rochester with you and all it's beauty*
