Buffalo Run

Great morning at Pioneers Park

The Buffalo Run course is one of the most unforgiving road course in the state. Fast opening miles lead into the toughest mile and a half to finish a race around.  But it is also a classic.  One of the longest continuously going races in the region, the Buffalo is a great fall test piece heading into marathon, or shorter, racing season.

The LRC Racing squad came away with three of the four titles.  Women's, Men's, and Men's Masters.  With the winning men's and women's times under 26 and 30, the course was set up with great weather (not always the case at Buffalo).  Team members were all over the top 10 for each gender and the logo was seen throughout the top half of results.

Many runners came close to their five year average, led by Andrew Jacob and Craig Christians.  Others were in the neighborhood, but couldn't quite reach this lofty goal.

Up next is Woody Greeno for the dirt and grass minded members of the team.
