 A morning for superhero runners. A morning for superhero families to have fun. Cayuga Centers first-ever Superhero 5K and Fun Run blasts off at Emerson Park in Auburn. Located on the shores of beautiful Owasco Lake, runners will love the in-the-park grass and pathway route along the shoreline, seawall and the historic Victorian pavilion and Merry-Go-Round Playhouse. This chip-timed race covers a fast flat course. The race start/finish and post-race activities offers lots of parking nearby.   And it’s all within a Fingerlakes’ postcard setting – Emerson Park.
