Training Runs Presented by OrthoNow Continue This Saturday  


The 2012 Mountain Goat Training Runs presented by OrthoNow continue this Saturday at The MOST in Armory Square. Over 1000 training bands have been sold for the series so far. Week 4 will follow the first 1.5 miles of the course and then head to Lower Onondaga Park and follow the race route over to Salina Street and your first look at Colvin Street, which many believe to be the toughest part of the Goat.    

This year we are charging a one-time $5 fee for the training run series. Pay once and train all 6 weeks. With your fee and a signed waiver, you will receive a special wrist band designed for the training runs. You must have the wrist band to participate. Wrist bands will be available before the run this week.   


Runners are responsible for their own safety and must obey all traffic laws. That means stopping at all traffic signals or stop signs and obeying anyinstruction by Syracuse Police. Runners should not be running more than 2 across, in particular up Onondaga Avenue where two-way traffic is often busy on Saturday.    

There will be two water stops with water and energy drinks. The first water stop is at the 2.5 mile mark at Salina and Colvin Streets and the second stop is at the 4.5 mile mark in the Rose Garden at Thornden Park. It will be manned by the young guys and gals of The Good Ole Boys Junior Bassmasters Fishing Club. Please thank them as you go by.

Here is a map of our Week 4 route, which should be as close to 7 miles as you can get.

Doors open at The MOST at 7:15, instructions are at 7:55 and the run begins at 8. 

Don't forget to throw in a dollar for the MOST to thank them for making their facility open for our training runs.
