Registration will begin at 7:45 a.m. and race will start at 9 a.m.

It is a flat and fast course along paved roads and a trail, a great course for first time runners.

No strollers or head sets are allowed due to safety issues.

The Invictus race is dedicated to the memory of Lawrence (Larry) Hynes, a coach and educator in the Union Endicott School District for many years who died in 2009.

His passion, dedication, and positive attitude was emulated in everything he did in life. His legacy will live on through the lives of the students whom he educated and coached along their educational journey. Every child, student, and athlete was so special to him and he had the innate ability to motivate them to strive to reach their full potential in life.
