  • Things to know:

    • This is the first year of the Tough Buff 5K and we are excited to have this opportunity to celebrate.

    • Picking a wave

      • We want everyone to enjoy the run and complete it at their own pace. The object of this run is for fun and for everyone to push themselves to do a little more than they thought the could do. Therefore, we have 10 different waves of pace. We have placed a mile time next to them so that you can designate your own pace. We will not be verifying this but please make sure to do what you are comfortable with. This will be unlike any other race you have tried and we want everyone to finish.

      • The shirts are not form fitting. They are traditional men's sizes. Please check back in a few days for the design.
