Because of the construction on Highway 25, the Buffalo Days carnival has moved to the parking lot at Sturges Park. Be aware of detours getting to the race. Racers will begin at a different starting point, but they will still run along the banks of Buffalo Lake and return to Sturges Park where refreshments will be waiting for them at the finish line.  All 5k participants will receive a special 10th anniversary T-shirt. Kids will run the shorter version of the same route once the last 5k participant crosses the finish line.

Age Groups & Prizes
All 5k participants will receive a special 10th anniversary T-shirt. Prizes for the 5k will be given to the top three finishers in each age bracket. Age brackets have changed this year due to the number of younger racers participating: NEW category—14 and under; 15-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60+.

The Kids’ Fun Run will have two age groups: ages 6 and under–1/4 mile run; ages 7-12–1 mile run. The top boy and girl in each age bracket will each win a prize. All kids will receive a special 10th anniversary t-shirt and a goodie bag. This run will take place after the Buffalo Run 5k is completed.
