2 Weeks Away From 2023 Tunnel to Towers 5K Run/Walk!

We are less than 2 weeks away from the 2023 Tunnel to Towers Foundation's Central New York 5K Run/Walk! We'll be putting out some posts with event day details in between thanking our sponsors, so stay tuned. Some important things we wanted to share right now....

This year's event is co-hosted by the City of Utica NY Official / Mayor Robert M. Palmieri and the Utica Roadrunners. Without either of these organizations, we would not have grown to where we are this year! For full event details, parking, shuttles, etc, see the FAQ section of our registration page:

We will be taking registrations right up to the start of the event but... in order to get a shirt size you want, we recommend that you sign up sooner than later. We will try to accommodate size requests the best we can but later registrations may not be able to get the requested sizes.

Packet pickup will be on Saturday, August 19 at The Sneaker Store's new location, 24 Genesee St, New Hartford, from 9am to 4pm. Parking is available at the store and in the municipal lot across the street (by Cavallo's and Cafe Canole). Run/walk day packet pickup will be at the FINISH LINE AREA at the Utica State Office Building. Arrive early enough to make it to the start line however.

The run/walk starts at 9 am this year! The course is the same but we changed the time to allow for participants traveling a little distance a little more time to arrive. Music will begin at 8 am at the start line and our opening ceremony at 8:45 am, so arrive early!

There will be a LOT to see along the course so if you are running in uniform or turnout gear or running gear, or walking with your family, it will hopefully be a moving experience for all.

After the run/walk, there will be live entertainment from the guys from Poor Tim, kid activities, food trucks and our closing ceremony and awards so plan on sticking around!

After we wrap up in downtown, head down to the The Celtic Harp on Varick St for our annual after party with more live entertainment! After we come together to help America's Heroes, join us as we unwind and soak in the day's accomplishments! We look forward to seeing you on August 20!
