Our pre-race meal consisted of tomato pie (it's a Utica thing), pasta, greens and stuffed shells.
There are many monetary prizes awarded to the winners which puts the professionals at the front of the pack.
This is where everyone is running to.
The post race party!
It is always held here.
This is the Once Again Nut Butter team I ran for.
Once Again Nut Butter donated all the peanut butter for the sandwiches at the post race party. With 14,000 runners that is alot of peanut butter! In your bag you received a sandwich, banana and baked Lays chips. There was also lot's of water available and the oranges never tasted so good.
This is what the crowd looks like at the party.
Pretty crazy huh?
What have all the runner's been waiting for?
