Kids Run

The 2021 Cree | Wolfspeed Erie Canal Race Weekend will not include a Kids Run. We are just as disappointed as you and all of the little runners we typically look forward to welcoming. We hope to resume this great event in 2022! 

Post Race Party

The 2021 Cree | Wolfspeed Erie Canal Race will not include the popular post-race party inside the Adirondack Bank Center. We hope to resume this great feature of the race in 2022!
