The 26th Grand Island Half Marathon is scheduled for Saturday October 31st, 2020
Don’t let the name fool you…we do more than just run on a track! The Greater Buffalo Track Club's (GBTC) primary purpose is to provide runners with opportunities to run and train with others of comparable interests and abilities. The club is open to anyone interested in running and related athletic activities - runners of all skill levels are welcome!
Members are encouraged to participate in weekly track workouts, club sponsored running races, the annual club party and other events. Members also have the opportunity to play an active role in planning and staging club races. Our annual flagship race is the GBTC - Grand Island Half Marathon held at Beaver Island State Park. The club also sponsors a 1 mile track race and a 5K cross country event. We support our local running community by volunteering in regional races such as the Niagara International Marathon and Buffalo Marathon.
Formed in 1986, the Greater Buffalo Track Club (GBTC) is a member of the USATF and Road Runners Club of America. We are also a New York State not-for-profit corporation.
GBTC members enjoy the comradery of sharing stories, food, drink and helping to set the vision for upcoming events during our regular club meetings. We look forward to welcoming old members and new to our various events!
