THE 2 MILE WALK ROUTE will go past the Rescue Mission and Catholic Charities Men’s Shelter and finish back at Columbus Circle. A stop and optional guided tour of the Catholic Charities Men’s Shelter will be available. Download course map for more details.

WHY IS THE RUN A 12K? 12k or 60 stadia is the distance from Jerusalem to Emmaus as mentioned in Luke 24:13-31. On the road to Emmaus two disciples meet a stranger, who turned out to be Jesus. The recognition of Christ to those disciples filled their hearts with hope. By supporting Emmaus Ministry, we too bring hope and the presence of Christ to the homeless and poor on the streets of Syracuse.

WHY IS THE WALK 2 MILES? The phrase going “The Extra Mile” comes from Matthew 5:41 that says, “If someone asks you to go one mile with them, go with them two.” By supporting Emmaus Ministry and extending mercy to others we go that second mile.

THIS IS NOT A RACE! This is a free charity/fundraising event. We only ask that you bring an item of need for the poor and homeless as your registration. Join us for a 12k group run or 2 mile walking tour of the “Mission District” of Syracuse and learn first hand about the plight of the homeless and how Road to Emmaus Ministry and other organizations are working to meet their needs. All participants are asked to stick to the sidewalks, obey all traffic signals and safe running and walking rules. Police presence will be available for the safety of all participants. *Donated item(s) can be left at Columbus Circle before the start of either the walk or run.
