Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village invites runners across Western New York to participate in the second annual 5K Run in the Country. Runners and walkers will enjoy a flat, fast and scenic certified course that begins and ends at Heritage Village, 3755 Tonawanda Creek Road, Amherst.
In addition to the natural beauty of the scenic course, awards for various age groups are being specially handcrafted by the skilled Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village blacksmith. These unique awards are sure to become the main attraction in any trophy case. The first 200 prepaid registrants will also receive a commemorative long-sleeve T-shirt.
Following the race, runners are invited to participate in an after-party at Heritage Village featuring live entertainment, food and beverages. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the maintenance and restoration of the organization’s historic buildings and 35-acre campus.
A one-mile Kids’ Fun Run will begin at 9:30 a.m., with the 5K run/walk taking place at 10 a.m. For more information or a race application, please visit www.bnhv.org.
