About The Flower City Challenge

The Flower City Challenge in Rochester, NY is a highly anticipated half marathon race that will take place on the 28th of April 2024. This race offers both in-person and virtual options, allowing participants to choose the experience that suits them best.

For the 2024 edition, there are exciting updates that make the race even more appealing. The start/finish location has been moved to Parcel 5, a beautiful green space in downtown Rochester. This new locale provides the perfect setting for a post-race party and an athlete’s village. Additionally, the course for both the Half Marathon and the 5K has been updated to showcase more of the city’s downtown and neighborhoods, giving runners a chance to immerse themselves in the sights and sounds of Rochester.

One unique feature of the Flower City Challenge is that it is part of the Four Season Challenge. By participating in this race, runners can earn extra schwag and an additional medal once they complete the Half or 5K. This adds an extra element of motivation and achievement for participants.

Rochester itself is a vibrant city, known for its beautiful parks and gardens, which are likely to be in full bloom during the race in April. The weather during that time of year is typically mild and pleasant, perfect for a long-distance run.
