** UPDATE: 7/27/2020 ** WAIVER IS UPDATED WITH COVID INFORMATION. PLATOON START AND POST RACE PARTY IS LIMITED.
Since 2012, the Veterans Race presented by Destination Races and sponsored by GEICO has been honoring all who served and currently serving in our military. Our goal is to raise $15,000 towards local veteran organizations support services. This year, we are proud to host the race with Veterans One-Stop Center and Buffalo Naval Park. Proceeds will benefit these two groups to PRESERVE PROTECT and HONOR our veterans. It's time to answer the call and run to show your gratitude to our veterans.
The 5K race is open to all, civilian or military, with special awards for top overall in each class. Run in honor of a veteran or as a military group. The race will cap at 250 participants on a flat course through Buffalo's Naval and Military Park. As of 7/27/2020, the Post Race party will not happen due to COVID-19 however, every participant will be handed a warm meal when crossing the finish. Awards will be mailed out and official times will be posted on-line at 5:00 PM (1700).
UPDATE: This race will use a "Platoon" (wave) start. Based on your estimated time to complete the race, you will be seeded into the corresponding Platoon. You cannot bump up to earlier waves. The Platoon start is designed to mitigate your exposure to COVID-19 by separating participants from a mass start. If you plan to run with a friend, you should use the slower of your times for seeding. No Platoon changes will be allowed.
