Same day registration available. All races are free to members of the Genesee Valley Harriers club. You will have an opportunity to join as part of registration if you are not currently a member.

  3. 1/2 mile loop around the field

All participants will receive a ribbon and popsicle at the finish. The races will not be timed. Parents are welcome to run with their children. All spectators are strongly encouraged to cheer the kids on.

The Tour de Pain
Many years ago, the Tour de Pain was born out of the age-old question of “what would happen if I just keep racing?” Normally held as part of the final race of IEXC, the Tour de Pain has been enlightening Rochester area runners for over 2 decades. It consists of a series of elimination races from 5km, 1 mile, and 400m- run consecutively with virtually no break. If you’re looking for pain, then this is the race for you!

Awards
Awards will be presented immediately following the race. Merchandise awards are provided by Innovative Edge Sports to the top three male and female finishers in each of the age divisions.
