Green Your Race

Making your race "greener" is a great way to demonstrate your commitment towards a more sustainable future.

We encourage interested runners, running groups and running stores that may have interest in learning more to contact us.

Unlike most organized runs held today, a Green Buffalo Run is unique in our ZERO IMPACT approach. Green Buffalo Runs are:

  • Promoted online (No paper registrations here)
  • Transportation Friendly (We encourage all attendees to walk, bike ride or carpool to the starting line)
  • Water Stations All attendees bring their own water/sport drink bottle. Expect to be dehydrated if you don't prepare in advance.
  • Post-Race Party (Think green)


Organize a Green Buffalo Run at Your School or Business: 

A number of online resources detail the basics behind organizing a run. We have included links below. Local running stores and clubs can also be helpful in pointing you in the right direction.

What separates a Green Buffalo Run from typical races is a minimalist approach. Most races today generate large amounts of waste, from discarded plastic cups to past race food waste. Ultimately this refuge is all wrapped up in plastic bags and packed off to landfills.
