Thanks to everyone that came out the race and thanks to all our awesome sponsors! We were able to raise $12,100 for The Spot! If you’d like to learn more about The Spot, visit their website HERE.

We hope to see you next year!


The Crosswinds 5K is a beautiful fall race through Canandaigua, New York and it is USATF Certified. This fun and challenging course of 20+ years is suitable for the whole family, but also challenging for the serious runner! Enjoy the first downhill mile through the City of Canandaigua and prepare for the ascent of West Lake Road before conquering the final hill through Ferris Hills.

Building off the momentum of last year, we are pleased to have two of our race day sponsors back with us! Live music from the Rolling Heads and a delicious post-race breakfast prepared by The Love Handles Eatery.

This race is fun, challenging and memorable, but its purpose is to invest in our areas children. All of our proceeds go to The Spot, an organization that provides FREE school supplies, clothing, food, and shoes to UPK-12th grade students in need within the Canandaigua and Victor school districts! Last year, we as a race community, were able to donate $11,500! With your help, we would love to set a new record this year!
