(Verona, NY – June 2012) Building on the success of the inaugural Turning Stone Races in 2011, the Oneida Indian Nation announced a three year extension to host the annual running event. The second annual Turning Stone Races consist of a half marathon, a 10K, and a 5K the weekend of Aug. 25-26.
Eident Sports Marketing President John Mathews said, “The Turning Stone Races offer something for everyone from the long distance runner to those who prefer a shorter distance. We’re very excited about our three year extension with Turning Stone Resort and the Oneida Indian Nation to host the event.”
All races start and finish on the grounds of the Turning Stone Resort Casino and take runners on a picturesque journey through farmlands and wooded areas of Upstate New York. Nearly 120 individual prizes are up for grabs for men and women of various age brackets as well as wheelchair competitors. All finishers receive a medal for their participation.
Entry fees for each race include hydration and fueling stations, medical support, baggage handling, security, and an official shirt. After each race, runners can enjoy refreshments and awards presentations.
