Utica Mayor Robert Palmieri unveiled 12 new fitness stations around the 2.2 mile perimeter of the South Woods Switchback trail today.

The 12 stations are specifically designed exercises for both walkers and runners.

The Utica Roadrunners oversaw and coordinated the project.

A $5,000 Community Impact Grant from the American Heart Association and a $2,900 grant from the Community Foundation of Herkimer and Oneida Counties helped pay for the project

The Roadrunners contributed $1,000 to complete the funding and the Utica DPW installed the stations.

Palmieri said  “I commend and thank the Utica Roadrunners and all the community partners who once again stepped to the plate to enhance the quality of life for our residents.”
