The “Make It Happen 20k Race Series” combines the traditional 5k races of the Oswego County Autism Task Force (held this past April), Oswego Little League, Oswego Health Foundation, and the Buc Boosters, into a 20k series.
 
Participants can now compete in all four individual events to determine an overall race series winner. The overall winners will be based on age group divisions and race time results from the combined four individual races.
 
According to event organizers, runners can still register for the individual races, however, and not necessarily participate in the 20k series.
  The remaining race dates are as follows:
  June 1, 2019 – 5th Annual Oswego Little League 5k Run/Walk
  August 10, 2019 – 4th Annual Run for Your Health 5k Run/Walk
October 6, 2019 - 4th Annual Go Bucs 5k Run/Walk
