Buffalo/Niagara, NY

At first glance, this 8k race might look like any other turkey trot, but the route through the Olmsted designed Delaware Park and into downtown Buffalo is more beautiful than expected. The course skirts a satisfying length between easy 5k and strenuous 10k. It’s a popular race, benefiting the local YMCA’s membership and programs. Thursday, November 23, 9 am.
