Copper City Brewing Company of Rome
This event is back for their 33rd year! As of 2/24/21, all in-person waves for the 10k & 5k have sold out. However, we love that there's still a virtual option for both races that can be completed anytime and anywhere between 4/5-4/11! Results can then be entered through RunSignUp. You'll get a winter hat, commemorative pin & a koozie that can be picked up Fri evening (4/9), Sat afternoon (4/10) OR it can be shipped. The Fort to Fort Run benefits our friends at The Rome Historical Society so it’s also a great way to help a local business. To sign up for the virtual race, head here: runsignup.com/Race/NY/Rome/Fort2FortRuns.
