The Running Griffin is Heading Back to Buffalo!


I am proud to announce that I will be heading back to Buffalo, New York to take part in the 2015 Buffalo Marathon! As many of you know, I participated in the 2013 Buffalo Marathon and the marathon from start to finish was one of the finest races I have participated in.

The course has changed since I last ran the Buffalo Marathon and I look forward to tackling the city once again. The new course features a new relatively flat and fast course, great volunteer support and a scenic view of downtown’s waterfront and its major landmarks. The course has been designed for our athletes to enjoy views of Lake Erie, LaSalle Park, First Niagara Center Home of the Buffalo Sabres, Forest Lawn Cemetery, parks designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and many other Buffalo highlights.

This year, the Buffalo Marathon has partnered with Team RWB (Red, White & Blue) to help in celebrating veterans on Memorial Day.  Buffalo is providing the venue allowing chapters from across the country to gather, share stories and ultimately compete with one another chapter against chapter for bragging rights. Runners can register to take part in the Team RWB Challenge by clicking here.

This year’s race will certainly take on a new meeting as the race will be held in memory of race director Tom Donnelly, who passed away suddenly this year at the age of 61. Donnelly and I collaborated together in marketing the 2013 Buffalo Marathon through The Running Griffin and it is clear by the outpouring of online support he was a running icon in the Buffalo community.

If you are interested in heading to Buffalo with me on Memorial Day weekend in 2015, please be sure to register for the race today by clicking here. Jet Blue offers direct service from Boston at a great rate and you will absolutely love the City of Buffalo! Stay tuned to The Running Griffin for more updates about the 2015 Buffalo Marathon!
