We’re BACK!

 

 

We are so excited to announce our return for a third year of fun at the wonderful venue of the Finger Lakes Museum and Aquarium in Branchport, NY.  With your help, we hope to make our 2020 event even bigger and better!  We moved the race to Saturday of Columbus Day Weekend to enjoy the great fall colors and other festivities in the Finger Lakes at that time.

Once again, any and all proceeds will be donated directly to the Keuka Comfort Care Home to help them meet their mission of providing compassionate end-of-life care to terminally ill people and their families.

NEW FOR 2020!

Be recognized as a biathlete!

Register for the Krossin’ Keuka swim event and the Life is a Journey 5K/10K run event and receive a special recognition!  

All people registered for Krossin’ Keuka swim on Saturday, July 25th and the Life is a Journey run on Sunday, October 11th will be recognized as a biathlete and receive a custom prize.  

 Register for the Krossin’ Keuka swim today at: www.krossinkeuka.org

To guarantee your spot in Krossin’ Keuka please register by July 1st.

For 2020, our goal is to more than DOUBLE the participation at last year’s event.  To accomplish this, we will build from the foundational elements our charter participants found most memorable .  These include:

  • the 5K & 10K Walk/Run, using the same out and back course, with its gently rolling hills, verdant farm fields and Finger Lakes beauty on full display,
  • a Kid’s Fun Event, free of charge
  • our energetic on-course support volunteers providing safety, hydration and an abundance of encouragement,
  • mood-setting start/finish-line musical entertainment,
  • an opportunity to dedicate your run in memory of a loved one by placing a ribbon in their honor on the Memorial Tree planted last year,
  • access to a range of post-race refreshments,
  • generous race swag, including a medal for all finishers.

Here’s where we ask for your help.  For now mark this race on your calendars and plan to come join the fun, and get your family members and friends to do the same!

More information to be provided as we get closer to opening of registration.  Cheers!
