This will be Buffalo Run: strictly adhering to the LLCHD directives at the time of the race. It will be an in-person race (no virtual component here!), but there may be a few slight changes required by the local health department and designed to protect the safety of all runners as much as possible. We will keep you up to date on the latest info. Don't worry! The challenge of the hills will still be in play. THAT hasn't changed a bit.
Here are the details:
WHEN: Sunday, Sept. 19, 8 a.m. Please enter the park via Van Dorn Street.
RACE DETAILS: The 5 Mile course is challenging but beautiful, running in the hilly roads of Pioneers Park. The traditional 5 mile course will be run.
