Buffalo Mile Venue Changed

BUFFALO - (February 4, 2001) - The date and location for the very popular Buffalo Mile road races event has been changed. The new date is Saturday June 9 at 9:00 A.M. and the new location is Lincoln Parkway.

Historically the event is held late in May near the Buffalo waterfront. The event is directed by the Checkers Athletic Club. Checkers president, Diane Sardes, said the change was necessary because of difficulty in securing a permit for the traditional waterfront location. The new venue may offer runners a slight advantage: there is a subtle downhill near the end of the new one mile course!
