Check the workout calendar below for weekend group runs. Only participate if you are healthy and feel comfortable doing so, and please be mindful of adhering to physical distancing guidelines.
Several running challenges will keep you motivated: The Buffalo Chips World Marathon Tour, the Buffalo Stampede Stagger and the Race Salad, a one-week challenge, all for the month of September. Details are announced in the weekly Chips eBlast, which goes out to all current members.
The new October challenge will be The Büffel Chips Oktoberfest Challenge. Details will be announced in our eBlast soon.
Complete the six major world marathons by the end of September without travel: Run Chicago, New York, Berlin, Tokyo, London and Boston in the Sacramento area. Document your runs adding up to 26.2 miles for each event via Strava or Garmin. Post images of your run on social media that remind you of sights in those world cities. A great medal will be yours -- see media slider to your right. Note: Air Quality has been bad. Therefore, the new and extended deadline for completing this challenge and ordering the medals is October 15.
Run the Buffalo Chips Stagger on September 13. You can run 5k or 4 or 10 miles and receive the Buffalo Chips Stagger Coaster.
And the final challenge for September is perhaps the hardest one, our Race Salad: On consecutive days run 1 mile, a 5k on the Willow Hills XC course, 5 miles on the 4-th of July Race course, 10 miles on the Stampede course, a Half Marathon anywhere along the American River, 25 k on the Jed Smith loops. You may rest on Day 7.
