As you may have already heard or seen on social media, the Rochester Regional
Health Flower City Challenge is coming back on June 19th & 20th! While the
event will look quite a bit different in 2021, then it has in years past, we
are so excited to bring more live races back to the Rochester running
These are some of the ways that 2021 will look different than previous years,
the start and finish lines will be in Genesee Valley Park at the request of
the City of Rochester, and the event will be split over 2 days allowing you
to choose your race day. In keeping with our COVID-19 guidelines, these
include: masks must be worn at the start/finish, post-race food will be in
prepackaged grab & go bags. There will not be any spectators and there
will be multiple start waves for you to choose from to allow for social
