Virtual Mountain Goat Run

Mountain Goat Run

The Virtual Mountain Goat Run allows each participant to run independently over the distance on any course (even on a treadmill) during the allotted time (during the first week of May in light of our originally scheduled race date of May 3, 2020).

The registered runner will subsequently receive their race swag (shirt, shoe bag, and medal) when it is deemed safe for us to gather and package and ship the items. The race is on your honor; we do not require uploading any information/proof. More info will be emailed to the registered virtual runners in April.

For those wondering about the money, the Mountain Goat Run Foundation is a not-for-profit. We provide a safe, secure, closed to traffic 10-mile road race through the City of Syracuse streets with aid stations for water and Gatorade under the guidance of Syracuse Police, AMR medical personnel and 500 volunteers on the course.

Time: Any time from 5/3 - 5/10
Location: Syracuse, NY
Deadline: Saturday, May 2, 2020
$75.00 Runners’ premium shirts, shoebags, training run shirts, bibs and finisher medals

Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra Experience with Sue Valerino

Infinite Light Center for Yoga & Wellness

Join us for Divine Sleep® Yoga Nidra, where you'll experience deeper levels of peace than you ever imagined possible. Give yourself permission to rest and restore, tapping into new sources of energy. This inspired practice requires nothing of you but to lie down and listen. Divine Sleep® Yoga Nidra helps cultivate self-compassion and can activate your dormant healing energy. It also assists in transforming limiting core beliefs and helps you recharge and catch up on rest and sleep.

We will begin with centering, followed by gentle range-of-motion warm-ups to prepare our bodies to enter a deeper state of rest where true healing and transformation can take place. Then you will be guided through each layer of your being, called the koshas, which include the physical, energetic, mental, emotional, wisdom and bliss-healing layers, allowing you to become mindful of your whole being. As you connect with your innate ability to heal, you restore to your natural state of well-being.

Divine Sleep® Yoga Nidra, developed by Jennifer Reis, is for anyone who desires inner peace and connection. Suitable for everyone. No yoga experience required.

Time: 10 a.m. - Noon
Location: Infinite Light Center
Deadline: Saturday, May 9, 2020

Join Women TIES Team at the Right to Run - 5K & 19K Race
Continuing to Run for Equality

National Women's Hall of Fame

Join us as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment!
2020 is finally here! This year marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote! It all started back in Seneca Falls, NY, when Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott held the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention – the first-ever Women's Rights Convention.

To some, the 19K may seem like a random number, but the 19k serves as a powerful reminder of the long, difficult journey women traveled to obtain their right to vote. Crossing the finish line takes dedication, resilience and strength, all qualities shared with the suffragists that fought for women's suffrage.

Men, women and children of all ages are welcome to join us for the Right to Run 19K & 5K, which will take place during Convention Days in beautiful Seneca Falls, New York. Convention Days is a three-day event that commemorates the United States' first women's rights convention that was held in Seneca Falls in 1848. On the second day of the convention, 68 women and 32 men signed the Declaration of Sentiments, which was the cornerstone of the women's equality movement. Join us as we celebrate the women before us and venture the road ahead!

Women's Right to Run 19K, Inc.'s purpose is to inspire, empower, mobilize and connect women. The 19K distance is a nod to the 19th amendment, which gave women the right to vote.

Tracy's favorite non-profit organization 261Fearless.org will be part of the event too with female runners from around New York State. Find out more about them.

Time: 7 a.m.
Location: Bailey Bridge located near the Seneca Falls Recreation Center
Deadline: Friday, July 17, 2020
$35.00 Varies By Registration Date and Race Type
