Syracuse Half Marathon

On Sunday, Brontë Schmit completed the half marathon in one hour and 58 minutes after months of training.

The time, 5:45 a.m., glowed from my cell phone. Rain fell from the sky. Three vehicles blocked my car in the parking lot. I frantically tried to coordinate a ride. Yet, I couldn't be more excited to run my second half marathon.

Long-time Central New York resident Ken Hammond also displays the city of Syracuse with events like the Syracuse Half Marathon and the IronGirl Triathlon.

The Syracuse Half Marathon takes runners through the heart of downtown Syracuse, up through the northern and eastern areas and back into city. In planning those 13.1 miles, race director Ken Hammond made certain runners would pass by abandoned buildings on James Street, the once-bustling Inner Harbor and through the new developments in historical Armory Square.
