The Utica Roadrunners are preparing for a pair of fall runs that have become staples of the changing seasons. 

The 44th annual Falling Leaves Road Race is Sunday, September 23. There are 14k and 5k runs, a 5k wheelchair run and a kids run.

Also, the Deerfield Skelton Run is set for Sunday, October 14, held on the trails at the Deerfield Town Park. Runners can wear 'run-friendly costumes', and the event will also feature hay rides and a pancake breakfast, organizers said.

You can sign up for both at Runsignup.com, or the Utica Roadrunners site.
