Earth Day Half Marathon & 5KEmmi Farm’s Greenhouse
Corner Rt. 370 & Vann Road
Baldwinsville, NY 13027

The Earth Day Half Marathon & 5K has quickly become one of CNY’s most looked forward to springtime races! Along with some of the best swag out there, all participants get a tree to plant! Runners love the connection to the countryside setting and find it to be therapeutic for mind, body, and soul. As you run along the low-traffic country roads, you’ll be rewarded with amazing views of rolling farmland, pastures with roaming cows and horses and the lookout at Beaver Lake. The race start/finish and post-race fest are at the Emmi Farm’s Greenhouse with lots of parking, conveniently nearby, within walking distance.

The half marathon is mostly a loop course on low-traffic, country roads with many friendly neighbors that come out to cheer you on! The course is described as having rolling hills with a good one, endearingly called Aw-Come-On Hill, just past the 8 mile mark. The 5K is an out & back along two fairly flat stretches of country road.

Following the race, you will be treated to live music, food & beverages, an ice cold beer and other treats.

The Earth Day Half Marathon & 5K event benefits the Syracuse Rescue Mission and local groups.

Race Weather and Climate

Baldwinsville is located just 15 miles NW of Syracuse in Central NY. Baldwinsville typically sees temperatures in April range between the high 50’s to mid 60’s, although, in 2016 the temps reached the mid-70’s just 2 weeks after a record shattering snow storm that dropped 6.5 inches of snow in the region and in 2017 we also saw temps in the mid 70’s!
