Cyclists and Runners Rejoice the Return of the Chris Thater Memorial Cycling and 5K Races
If you’re looking to take a step towards a beach body this summer or just looking for an excuse to get off the couch, what more could you ask for than a 5K event right here in the Southern Tier?
Online registration is available for both the cycling and 5K events for the 32nd Annual Chris Thater Memorial Races which will be held August 22nd and 23rd in Downtown Binghamton, a tradition held in honor of Chris Thater, a 23 year-old cycling enthusiast and Binghamton University graduate who was killed by a drunk driver in Broome County in 1983.
An event for the whole family, there will be a free Kids Run following the 5K at 10:45am on August 23rd. Race day registration will be available near Boscov’s on Court St. Free parking will be available at all downtown parking ramps.
Those interested in registration (we hope that’s you!) can check out the registration page and schedule of events. If you’re more comfortable registering in person or by mail, registration flyers are available to print on the website.
Whether it’s your first race, second race, or maybe you’ve completely lost count, this Binghamton favorite is worth lacing up your sneakers on a sunny summer afternoon. Don’t miss a minute of the excitement this August and mark your calendars for a weekend guaranteed to leave you smelling of sweat and success!
