Mountain Goat Run on May 7 to Lead to Road Closures, Shuttle Delays on Campus
The 45th annual Mountain Goat Run will take place Sunday, May 7. More than 2,500 runners are expected to take part in the race, which will affect traffic and roads in the city throughout the day. The 10-mile course traverses a large section of the City of Syracuse, including roads on campus and around the University area.
Members of the campus community should be advised that temporary road closures will take place between 9:45 a.m. and noon on the day of the race. Centro shuttles and Syracuse University trolleys will also be delayed during that time, affecting travel to and from South Campus.
Runners will enter the University area from East Colvin Street by the John A. Lally Athletics Complex, necessitating road closures along Comstock Avenue. They will turn right on University Place through Thornden Park, exiting the park down Madison Street, and then turning right on South Crouse Avenue and left onto East Genesee Street.
Race organizers ask neighbors to proceed with caution and allow for additional travel time to your destination if they are traveling near the routes. Organizers also encourage community members to cheer on the race participants and join in the fun at the finish line in Clinton Square.
