The Downtown Binghamton Business Association and the City of Binghamton, NY, will host the 9th annual Parlor City 5K Run on Saturday, July 9th at 9:00 AM. The open road race is a certified US Amateur Track & Field 5K distance (NY14059JG). The race will circuit the historic West Side of Binghamton and end back at the 2016 July Fest. The course is relatively flat and fast and with hot weather should take runners through some cooler residential neighborhoods. Following the race there will be a free Kid's Run across the Court Street Bridge. The race will be followed by Binghamton's annual Binghamton Music Festival which features regional musical groups. The race is the 6th event in the new Empire Road Race Series whose goals are to encourage fitness and health in New York State; support our communities; whether a novice or seasoned competitor - test your limits; and to be the most fun you ever had with rockin’ after parties! And be sure to get a commemorative 2016 Parlor City 5K SporTek T-shirt available in male and female cuts for an extra $10.00!
