DESCRIPTION: The Sizzle is back, and it is hotter than ever!  One of our classic races that returns to Proctor Park and our friends at the Masonic Care Community!  The Utica First Summer Sizzle enters its 34th year.  Come celebrate Father’s Day on June 19th as the Summer Sizzle Five Mile Road Race is proud to be a part of the UR Six Pack!

We will be following all city. state, and federal guidelines to hold a safe race for all our participants.  We will also be offering a Virtual and VirtuReal option for runners who would prefer to do the 5 mile distance on their own.  In the event we are not able to hold our event, we will transfer all entrants into a Virtual category.  There will be no refunds or deferrals into 2023.  

The Summer Sizzle has a long-standing tradition of being a family event.  To celebrate Father’s Day we will have multiple divisions for families to compete in for special awards and prizes.

What do you get?  A hot Summer Sizzle Tank, a Summer Sizzle headband to soak up the sweat, and some sweet Summer Sizzle Shades to keep you looking cool!

Those Divisions include:

Father/Son, Father/Daughter, Mother/Son, Mother/Daughter, and a Division for all Couples.

The Half Mile Kids Run begins at 8:30 am and the Five Mile Summer Sizzle begins at 9 am!
