Frank Lloyd Wright
4 mile & 10K Virtual Race
Some of Buffalo’s architectural gems and tree-lined streets are home to the Queen City’s first free virtual race courses. The 10k and four mile routes snake through north Buffalo and pass multiple homes designed by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright along with other well-known landmarks.
Both the 10k and four mile courses start and finish at the Darwin D. Martin Complex - 125 Jewett Parkway, at the corner of Jewett Parkway and Summit Avenue.
These courses are a fun way to combine running with the incredible history and beauty that our city holds. And there’s no better way to see the City of Good Neighbors than by running through the neighborhoods that give it that great nickname.
How to participate?
Once you register, you’ll receive an email race packet that includes printable and digital versions of the course maps. Runners will also receive a printable keepsake runner’s guide that provides course maps along with historical and architectural information about the neighborhoods, homes and other landmarks runners will pass.
When to run or walk?
Run or walk either or both of the courses between October 15 and November 15 at a time of your choosing.
Why’s it free?
As an organization, the Greater Buffalo Track Club’s mission is to provide opportunities for the running community to run and train - and while that’s been challenging during a pandemic, we’re continuing to find creative ways to support and grow our organization. Members of our club participate in weekly track workouts - typically held on Tuesday evenings, distance runs on Sundays and cross-country and trail runs on Thursdays and runners of all skill levels are welcome!
