Rochester runners, bikers, paddlers, and kayakers: this is what you've been training for all year. Unity Health System presents its fourth Flower City Challenge on Saturday, April 27, and Sunday, April 28. This year's traditional challenges include the SPM River Challenge — a duathlon or paddle triathlon, depending on your stamina and/or preference — starting Saturday at 7:30 a.m. at Genesee Waterways on Elmwood Avenue.
On Sunday, you can come back to tackle the Flower City Half Marathon and Wegmans Family 5K, starting at the War Memorial (1 War Memorial Square) at 7:30 and 7:45 a.m., respectively. In summary: Get ready for one of the most exhausting weekends of the year.
Pre-registration for Flower City Challenge events costs $18-$140, depending on the event and the number of people registering together.
