One of the biggest weekends in Central New York is Heart Run & Walk weekend. This event always raises a huge amount of money for an amazing cause, The American Heart Association. The weekend's event offerings are changing just a bit and may lead to an increase in money raised.

The Half-Marathon is one of the most popular running events in the country right now. It's a run of 13.1 miles and it's been added to the already popular running events line-up for America's Greatest Heart Run and Walk. There will be the walk, the three mile, five mile, and 18.6 mile run, but this half-marathon will increase the fund-raising goal for one of Utica's biggest community events. If you would like to register for this event, you can do so by visiting The registration is just $60 and will be limited to 500 runners. Hopefully we can continue to make this event one of the most successful events for The American Heart Association in the nation.
