Dunn Tire Mountain Goat Run Training Runs start this week

April 02, 2014 at 2:46 PM


The Dunn Tire Mountain Goat Run is the only race in Syracuse that has an official training run series. We have been amazed at its success but organizers and participants alike have assumed it would always be there. The training runs start this Saturday at the MOST. As you know this is a critical year as we have been put on notice by the Syracuse Police Department that the runs will be stopped if participants do not obey traffic laws, creating unsafe situations for motorists and runners.

Here is what you need to know.  

You must sign up online for the training runs this year. The cost is $15 for the four-week series and each participant will be given a wristband indicating you are registered. All registration money will go to cover our bill for police protection during the runs and for a donation to the MOST, which has hosted us free of charge for nearly 10 years. Please do not run if you are not registered, no exceptions. The training runs cost us over $2,000 a week to put on and it is unfair for anyone to participate without paying.  

All participants who have registered for the training runs can avoid lines on Saturdayby picking up their training run wristband at the Fleet Feet Sports locations in DeWitt on Bridge Street or Route 31 in Clay prior to Saturday. Wristbands for those registered will also be available for pick up on Saturday at the MOST, but all registration should be done online in advance.

The doors of the MOST will be open starting at 7 a.m. and the run will begin promptly at 7:30 a.m. This week the run is 5.75 miles and you can view the route here

We will have one water stop on the training route this week and runners will go by it twice. Once again it will be operated by the Good Ole Boy's Junior Fishing Club.

Runners must obey all Syracuse Police officers and traffic signs and signals. Do not cross in the middle of the street and do not run more than two abreast. We ask you to help by letting others know if they are not obeying the rules.

The four week series was not our choice but was the only option we were approved for this year. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding.

Jake Squid:The guy is a cernitstSay what? President Obama is a cernitst? IIRC he was tied for the most left-wing voting record in the Senate his first two years there. I've heard him called a lot of things but cernitst is not one of them. Maybe relative to out-and-out socialism or European politics (but I suppose that's redundant) he's a cernitst but on the American political spectrum he's definitely left-of-center.
