TOUR DESCRIPTION

Details

Run the streets that 60 millionaires used to call home in the 1880’s. Between 1880’s-1920’s, Buffalo had more millionaires per capita than any other city in the USA, as the city was a trade hub due to it’s locaton on the Erie Canal. As we run along the tree lined streets and wide avenues, you wil feel the grandness of the 1880’s Buffalo.

But Buffalo is more than wide avenues and a rich past. It has a vibrant art and culture scene. The Albright-Knox Art Gallery that our tour passes is evidence of this. To get your own personal `Rocky Balboa` pictures, we can run the steps of the gallery. As we continue the running tour, the next stop is the only remaining building from the 1901 Pan American Expostion, the Buffalo Historical Society.

Buffalo is vibrant and happening, but everything comes to a standstill when we enter the peaceful Japanese gardens. Next, we run to Delaware Park. The park was designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, who also designed New York City’s Central Park.

Continuing on the running tour, we will view a true American icon, the Darwin Martin House, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. On our way back through Delaware Park, we will stop to view the Buffalo bison, courtesy of the Buffalo Zoo. They make a great background for a picture if we can find them near the fence! We end our tour with a run thru the Elmwood Village, home to shops, bars and interesting people!

This tour is perfect for the runners who would like to experience both the historic and modern Buffalo.
