Starting near the Clark Street/Buffalo Street/South Park Avenue Roundabout in the Village of Hamburg, the new race course winds through the heart of the Village of Hamburg. The race course is now certified by USATF/RRTC (#NY11101JG) - conveniently starting and finishing just paces away from J.P. Fitzgerald’s Restaurant on Clark Street, the host site for both pre-race registration and the post-race party. Already certified by the Buffalo Runners’ Association, this relatively flat race course is considered a fast track for competitive runners and a comfortable course for those just looking for the benefit of walking or running as part of a great day and greater cause.
The course is just blocks away from the Buffalo and Main Street corridors in the heart of the Village of Hamburg, with its new roundabouts serving as the focal point of a major, Village-wide renovation project which was recognized in 2010 as one of the ten best roadway and infrastructure improvement projects in the Nation. All participants will finish near the site of the post-race party, which will include food, snacks, beverages, live music, bounce houses and fun for all adults, kids and kids-at-heart.
