The Chris Thater Memorial is dedicated in memory of Christopher Thater, a 23 year-old cycling enthusiast and Binghamton University graduate who was killed by a drunk driver in Broome County on October 16, 1983. In 1984, the Broome County STOP-DWI Program started an annual bicycle race to remember Chris and to elevate public awareness of substance abuse and traffic safety.

The race attracts over 1,000 participants from local athletes to world-class competitors with crowds of up to 5,000 spectators. The Chris Thater Memorial consists of the Pro, Elite and Novice cycling events, and a 5K Run through the Westside of Binghamton. The Chris Thater Memorial also features demonstrations and other youth sports and special events.
