Rochester Twilight Criterium Adds Elite Road Mile

NYLON –The Rochester Twilight Criterium will be adding a new event this year.

A road mile running race will be joining the criterium event, bringing elite-level competition.

“I had the idea years ago to put together runners and cycling” said Executive Director Scott Page. “Almost any weekend there are 5K’s, and 10K’s to do. Nobody’s doing any speed stuff.”

The mile event has time standards athletes must hit to qualify for their fields. “Elite”, and “Amateur” runners will take to the criterium course, in different flights.
The Elite races will be capped at 40 runners each, while the Amateur races will be capped at 50 each. There will be prize money given out to the top Elite runners.
The race will take place Saturday, Aug. 19. The first flight of runs are slated to begin at 7:35 p.m. A full schedule of events can be found here.
