About This Activity

This is a fundraiser for the Rome Historical Society. The run starts and finishes at The Mill (611 E. Dominick St., Rome). This is an evening run that incorporates elements of the old Oneida Carry where boats were portaged between the Mohawk River and Wood Creek prior to the construction of canals. This year's course uses portions of the Mohawk River Trail from historic Little Italy to the MVCC campus and back. Once the run finishes, the party begins at The Mill, with entertainment provided by CNY's own Pocket Change newgrass band.
