19th Annual Twin Tiers Race for the Cure


The last day to take advantage of the Early Bird Registration Discount for the 19th annual Twin Tiers Race for the Cure® is Tuesday, February 28, 2017.

The Race, scheduled on Sunday, May 21, 2017, will benefit the Twin Tiers Region of Susan G. Komen® and will start and finish at Chemung Canal Plaza, Elmira, home of Presenting Sponsor, Chemung Canal Trust Company. 

The Race for the Cure® is Komen Twin Tiers’ signature event and largest single fundraiser, largest Walk/Run devoted to Breast Cancer, and draws 3,000 participants and volunteers from throughout our 9 county service region (Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga, and Tompkins Counties in NY, and Bradford, Potter and Tioga Counties in PA).

Proceeds from past Races have enabled Komen Twin Tiers to distribute over $1,300,000 (75% net proceeds) to LOCAL grantees since 2000 who, in turn, provide programs and services which include screenings, mammograms, education, supports, and help eliminate barriers to care. With 1 in 8 women diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, and with a significant number of uninsured and under-insured women living in the Twin Tiers, these Local community grants are critical to the health and welfare of the families in our region.

The Early Bird Discount of $10 off the $30 Registration Fee will apply for on-line registrations through

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 ONLY.

Beginning midnight, March 1st, the online price will increase to $25.

Registration benefits include: a 2017 Race for the Cure® tee shirt, ALL Runners and Walkers receive a $10 gift card to Pure Design in Corning, and a $10 gift card to Yesterday’s at the Arnot Mall, free yoga class from Heart 2 Heart, and more!

The sanctioned racecourse incorporates the beautiful Lackawanna Trail, and the 5th annual Kids’ Fun Run will be available for children ages 2-9, to enjoy their own races and activities. Priced at $10, which includes a Kids’ Fun Run tee, registrations forms can also be found on-line.

Again, this year, Breast Cancer Survivors are also encouraged to join Survivor Sponsor, Arnot Health, who will host a Survivor Breakfast and tent.

Leading up to the Race, Komen Twin Tiers will hold the 6th annual Passion2Action Race Rally at Arnot Mall on April 8, 2017. Please join us and register for the Race, learn about breast health, purchase Komen merchandise, and more. A free cupcake for each attendee wearing a past Race t-shirt will be available courtesy of Race Sponsor, Arnot Mall.
