Friends & Family can hit a HOME RUN too! Each 10k, 13.1, or 26.2 runner can have up to (4) friends and family purchase a HOME RUN wristband and celebrate all the way to home plate with their runner after they cross the official finish line!

100% of $10 HOME RUN upgrade goes to local Syracuse charities! Purchase your HOME RUN wristband(s) during the Health & Fitness Expo! Please note: ONLY HOME RUN participants with wristbands will be allowed on the field.
