Hot 5: Buffalo Marathon
Sadly, I will not be running the Buffalo Marathon this year. But I would like to be, since it joins the Turkey Trot in the winner’s circle of the most beloved Buffalo runs. On Sunday, May 29, the streets of downtown will be teeming with runners, their friends and family, and gawkers like me, and as always, it will be a blast. A postrace party and awards ceremony will be held at the Buffalo Convention Center, where you can make like the Russian junior hockey team at the Adam’s Mark and celebrate, baby. There is even a prerace pasta dinner the night before, and a children’s mini-marathon that afternoon (May 28). See buffalomarathon.com for all the details.
Marathon, half-marathon, and relay events at 7 a.m. on Sunday, May 29, starting on Pearl St.; 694-5154 or www.buffalomarathon.com.
