Want to look as fast as you feel? Order a custom Trackapalooza racing singlet during registration for just $20 and pick it up at the meet. Quantities are limited, so register and order soon!

Thanks to the SOAR Running Club, and the Groton Project for help with the field events and hurdles!

WHERE

The meet takes place at the Lansing High School track, 76 Brickyard Road, Lansing, NY, 14882. Note that Brickyard Road is a right turn (when driving from Ithaca on 34B/Ridge Road) before you get to Lansing High School. There is ample free parking.

FLRC encourages runners to carpool to make the race more inclusive for those without cars, help fight climate change, and ease parking congestion—sign up to drive or ride.

WHEN

Bib pickup opens at 8:00 AM. All runners in the first event should have picked up their bibs by 8:45 AM. If you’re running only a late event, you may pick up your bib during the meet, but please check in at least 45 minutes before your heat.

The first event starts at 9:00 AM.

SIGNUP

Online registration is required and is open until Friday, July 19 at 6 PM (the night before the meet). There is no day-of-meet registration!
