YNN Cares Event: Syracuse Festival of Races
The 2011 Syracuse Festival of Races was held October 2nd, at the Manley Field House. Thousands of people turned out on a very rainy Sunday morning. The YNN StormChaser was there to greet runners when they finished the race. While entrant numbers were down for the 2011 races, that didn’t stop runners from breaking national records with records being set in the men’s and women’s 5K runs, including the national record for a 93 year old runner by Henry Sypniewski.
