Race results will be posted both on-premise and online after the event. The Melissa Fund SUN RUN™ is a timed, USATF certified/sanctioned event for those interested in running. Non-running adults, teens, children, parents with strollers, and (child-friendly) dogs on leashes are all welcome to participate in the walking group. There will also be a short children's "run" right before the start time of the adult running group.
We highly encourage families to participate, especially because Melanoma is often a young person’s cancer. It is important to educate children, parents, and young men and women on the dangers of this deadly disease - and the simple steps toward protection.
Parking for SUN RUN:
Limited parking will be available at Town Hall near the registration and starting line. Overflow parking is available at the Cornwall Central Middle School (122 Main Street, Cornwall, NY 12518), which is approximately ¼ mile from the starting line. Anyone choosing to park in the Cornwall Central Middle School parking lot should allow for travel time from the lot to the registration tent.
