Cancelled Buffalo Half gets new life

If you signed up for the Rapid Running Buffalo Half Marathon — which was cancelled abruptly last week, leaving hundreds of runners who’d signed up for the race without an explanation or refunds — you’ll have a chance to run 13.1 this weekend after all, thanks to the efforts of a local group of organizers.

The Buffalo Niagara Sports Commission and the town of Orchard Park scrambled quickly to put together a race that will finish where the original race had been planned, on the playing field at the Buffalo Bills’ home stadium. Now called the “50 Yard Finish,” the race will honor registrations for the cancelled Rapid Running race, provided you can provide proof of registration.
