The 21th Edition of 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?” Now in its 20th edition, the Tour de Pain has been enlightening Rochester area runners for decades. If you’re looking for glory, then this isn’t the race for you. If you’re looking for pain, then this my friend, is the race for you.

The Tour will be held as part of the final IEXC race on August 25th. Immediately following the 5k race participants will complete a 1 mile race and then a 400 meter race. Might there be some special, painful surprises to commemorate 20 years of Pain? Your journey to enlightenment begins with a single click.

To register for the Tour de Pain, you must also register for the August 24th 5k race.



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.



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 following age divisions:

  • Youth (13 and under)
  • High School (14-18)
  • Open (19-39)
  • Master’s (40-49)
