The Retro Run 5k

Saturday August 8th, 2020

Binghamton, NY

Official Website


This course was originally the "Sun Run 5k" course that was a very popular course during the 1970s and 1980s.  With the Greater Binghamton area having such a rich running community history, what better course to bring back to life?! With new name "The Retro Run 5k" there is plenty of opportunity to design an ultra-groovy, super-retro running outfit, use your imagination and bring some color to this fun-filled event! 

We will have Male & Female Age Group prizes (1st, 2nd, 3rd places for 10 year age groups) along with prizes for Male & Female Open and Masters for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.

The Retro Run 5k will be the third race in the 2021 Empire Road Race Series schedule.  The Empire Road Race Series is a collection of races, the more you run in the Series, the more FREE swag you earn (swag: tech shirts, sweatshirts, running hats, etc.) at the End of Series Party.
