Virtual Jolly Roger 5K
August 7 @ 12:00 am - August 8 @ 11:59 pm
The Jolly Roger 5K is one of the key fundraisers for the Palmyra-Macedon Select Choir. Proceeds support the domestic and international travel of the ensemble, as well as countless performance opportunities in the area.
Due to concerns with large groups gathering, we have decided to host this as a virtual race again this year. Runners will have the option of picking up their swag, having it mailed to them, or not taking any swag this year.
This event typically runs in conjunction with Palmyra Pirate Weekend!
Top M/F in the following age groups 14 and under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+
Results: Record your race time on the results tab by 11:59pm EST on Sunday 8/8 to be eligible for awards.
To ensure you receive swag this year, you must be registered by July 10th. We cannot guarantee swag for any runner who registers after July 10th @ 11:59 PM. We will be holding a swag pick-up event, for those who elected to pick-up swag, sometime the week of August 2nd. Racers will be notified of the specific date and time as details are finalized. Mailed swag will go out at that same time. We will email participants individually when swag has arrived and the pick-up date/time is confirmed.
The Select Choir is a group of 30 students in 10-12 grade who are dedicated to vocal music and academics. In addition to their regular school concerts, the Choir is committed to musical community service throughout the area, and presents the annual Madrigal Dinners each December. The ensemble has performed extensively throughout the east coast, including Boston, New York City (Carnegie Hall in both 2014 and 2017), Philadelphia, and Chicago. International tours include Germany, Austria, Switzerland, England, Scotland, Wales, Greece, and Italy. Conductor Jill Davis has lead the group since 2007.
While this is a virtual race this year, you can still run our traditional course. It is known to be a fast course and perfect for a PR. It’s also part road and part canal path which allows for a scenic view of the Erie Canal as runners enter the Aqueduct Park area within the last mile.
