City of Good Neighbors Virtual Run – July 13 – Nov 26

The local run community in this area has always been supportive, compassionate and most of all, inclusive. That is why Runn’er’s Roost, with the help of HOKA ONE ONE and numerous other partners, felt it was time to create a virtual race that supports the community and gives back to those in need.

Introducing the City of Good Neighbors Virtual Run. A 385 mile run from Buffalo city hall to the White House in Washington DC. Starts July 23 through to November 26 (Thanksgiving Day)to show support of diversity. 

Both individual and relay team registration options will be available,  route updates based on mileage submitted, participation t-shirts and finishing medals will be provided.

All proceeds go to benefit of the Buffalo Foundation of Neighborhood Centers (bfnc.org), the Lee Project/www.leeproject.org, Feed More WNY (formely The Food Bank and Meals on Wheels of Western New York)/www.feedmorewny.org.

The Walter C Hobson Community Outreach Foundation/www.walterchobson.org, will be supporting the Virtual Run with volunteers.

125th Running of the YMCA Turkey Trot – November 26

Since 1896 runners have competed in the cross-country race that has become today’s Turkey Trot. The race attracts serious runners, amateurs, and team competitors alike. The Turkey Trot is an 8k footrace which traditionally begins on Delaware Avenue, and continues into downtown Buffalo.

In light of today’s pandemic, YMCA Buffalo Niagara realizes this year’s event has to be different, but we still encourage you to join us for our milestone celebration of this amazing WNY holiday tradition! All registered participants will receive a 125th YMCA Turkey Trot t-shirt and face mask.

The impact of your participation extends far beyond the Thanksgiving holiday. As a Turkey Trotter, you are helping to support kids and families across Western New York both now and throughout the year ahead. All proceeds from the Turkey Trot help fund YMCA programs that empower youth, improve community health, and ensure access to all.

Join Our Walking or Running Group


Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, both walk and run groups at the store are on hold till further notice.

Join us Monday (walking) or Thursday (running) nights year-round for an evening of run, friendship and post-run social fun. All ability levels are welcome, and there is no charge. We vary the distances, usually 3 and 5 mile routes from the store for running and shorter for walking, and although the difficulty may vary, it is always a good time. We try to arrange shoe trials with brands like Saucony, Mizuno and Brooks throughout the summer running season. Ask us about our trail runs. Come on out, we’d love to see you.

Runner’s Roost is Buffalo’s premier running store. As a run specialty store, we carry a broad range of neutral and stability shoes from most of the popular brands in various price points. If we don’t have what you are looking for, we’ll order it for you.
