It's the premier virtual adventure of the summer. "Summer Around the Finger Lakes" presented by Fleet Feet is the perfect opportunity to embark on a beautiful journey around each of the 11 Finger Lakes of Upstate New York. You choose between the virtual 5 lake journey (Canandaigua, Keuka, Seneca, Skaneateles, and Cayuga) or the full 11 lake virtual journey (5 lake journey plus Conesus, Hemlock, Canadice, Honeoye, Owasco, and Otisco). Starting on June 1, 2021 you have 120 days to walk, run, cycle, or paddle the distance of each lake. You will receive your finishers medal via mail, and for each lake you virtually circumnavigate, you will receive a unique charm for that lake to attach to your medal! Your goal is to collect them all!

The 5 Lake Virtual Tour is 292.5 total miles (~2.4 miles per day for 120 days!)

The 11 Lake Virtual Tour is 408.2 total miles (~3.4 miles per day for 120 days!)

WHY the Finger Lakes?

The Finger Lakes are a must-see destination! The Finger Lakes are a group of 11 long, narrow, lakes roughly running North to South in an area informally called the Finger Lakes region in New York, From hiking and biking, to boating and fishing, there's something for everyone to enjoy. There are also a number of state parks with scenic beauty to behold. From the breathtaking views to the unimaginable amount of family fun, this is the perfect virtual event. The Finger Lakes area is also New York's largest wine-producing region. Over 100 wineries and vineyards are around Seneca, Cayuga, Canandaigua, Keuka, Conesus, and Hemlock Lakes. Because of the lakes' great depth, they provide a lake effect to the lush vineyards that flank their shores.

Follow us on social media as we will be posting fun facts and historical information about the lakes as you log your miles.
