A Syracuse tradition since 2011, the Empire State Marathon, Half Marathon, & 10K are fast, flat, family-friendly races that combine all the charm of upstate New York at peak autumn foliage with the beautiful views of Onondaga Lake. Registration is limited to only 2,000 participants.

    Fairly flat, all path/streets/concrete. Love the views around Lake Onondaga. Signing up was easy. Rest of production sucked. “Expo” had 2-3 vendors. Got t-shirt but nothing else. Parking was very confusing and not clearly marked. Decent number of water/Gatorade stops but only a few had garbage bags or something to throw away cups besides the ground. Will not run it again.

    This is a flat out and back course primarily through Onondaga Park and surrounding neighborhoods. As you move further into the park, the trails narrow making it difficult for spectators to access and consequently it can become monotonous. The race organizers value participant feedback and have improved overall organization of the race as well as swag from year to year. Will do it again!
