BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Get ready for the first annual Dyngus Day Dash.
The Dyngus Day Dash is a two person relay race over a one mile distance. Each runner will run half a mile.
Instead of using a traditional baton, racers will pass off a pussy willow to their partner.
Officials are encouraging racers to wear costumes.
It costs $25 to register. Every racer will get a t-shirt.
The race will take place on the Houghton Park track. The relay starts at 10 a.m. Monday.
All proceeds will benefit the Kaisertown Friends Association.
