Race Recap: 2010 Buffalo Marathon

Two of our DART runners Todd Hartung and Bobby Aswell both decided to spend part of their Memorial Day weekend running in the 2010 Buffalo Marathon. For Bobby this would be his 150th marathon and number 18 for Todd. A Saturday morning flight to Buffalo for a 7am Sunday race with a return flight Sunday made for a short visit.

The race is described as a flat couse with cool temperatures. The couse was flat but the temperatures reached the 80's and slowed most runners. Bobby crossed the line in 3:07 and placed 2nd in his age group and received a nice trophy. Todd crossed in 3:39 and would have to enjoy looking at Bobby's trophy.

The race was well organized and well run. It included a small but nice expo, very nice race shirt and great finishers' medal. They also had a good pasta dinner the night before as well as a post race party with food and music. The course was scenic and gave a nice tour of various parts of Buffalo.

The Buffalo marathon with normal average temperatures would be a great race and one for a PR or Boston qualifier.

Way to go, Todd and Bobby!
