Vestal XX

Sun September 20, 2020 Vestal, NY 13850 US Directions


8:00AM EDT
2020 VXX Cancelation

VXX Community,

It is with deep regret that we will have to cancel the VXX race for 2020.  As you know we had already delayed the race to October, but have been unable to secure use of Vestal Central School District Facilities which are normally used for the race, due to the ongoing COVID 19 Pandemic.  

To allow for some form of Virtual VXX Participation, we will be setting up a Strava Segment / Challenge that anyone will be allowed to participate in.  The times for the Strava Challenge are still being determined, but we plan on age grading the times for anyone who complete the challenge and awarding prizes to the top 3 men and top 3 woman at the TCRC Annual Dinner.  Note that participating the the VXX Strava Challenge will NOT count towards the VXX Honor Roll.  More information on the VXX Strava Challenge yet to come.  

At this time, we will not be offering refunds, as the entry fee was only $1.  The capital collected from the 2020 entry fees will be donated to Sky Lake, similar to previous years.  

Thank you for your understanding during this challenge time.

Twenty Kilometer Road Race Vestal, New York. This is the oldest race in New York State's southern tier with roots back to the 1930s.
