Rochester Marathon changes hands

The Rochester Marathon is under new management.

The race was started by the Arthritis Foundation of Upstate New York in 2005. It's the only marathon that starts and finishes in downtown Rochester.

The Arthritis Foundation has sold it to YellowJacket Racing, a family-owned local company that manages and provides timing for races. YellowJacket says the marathon will continue as a fundraising event for local charities. It plans to launch a new fundraising partnership later in the year.

This year's marathon is scheduled for September 21st.
