Thousands of people are hoofing it around the City of Syracuse as they compete in the annual Mountain Goat Run through the city's hills. Karen Lee was in Clinton Square for the start of the race. She joins us now with more.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- It's a hot and very muggy day, but that didn't deter more than 2,300 runners. They tackled Syracuse's highest hills for the 32nd annual Mountain Goat Run.
Elevation gains are said to be more than 565 feet. The ten mile course around the city can be grueling at times, but runners seemed to be ready for the challenge.
The race director says they made sure to stock up on extra water and ice to help runners fight the humidity.
