The Early Bird catches the worm and saves $10 on our always popular Buffalo Marathon course tour, held the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. Just click on the "Book Now" button below, and you can reserve. You don't have to be a runner, either. Many locals like taking the tour, which goes to many places our famed Whirlwind Tour doesn't, like LaSalle Park on the Lake Erie, The Connecticut St. Armory, and Parkside and the Darwin Martin House.
Relax, scout the Buffalo Marathon route aboard the fabulous Open-Air Autobus, and get expert commentary on the city’s landmarks and lore the whole 26.2 miles. (If you are a runner, the next day you’ll be in too much of a hurry)
You won’t break a sweat, either.
Houses by Frank Lloyd Wright, mansions by McKim, Mead & White, parks by Frederick Law Olmsted, historic office buildings, towering grain elevators, picturesque neighborhoods: all seen and explained. All in the time it takes to run a nice marathon, about 2:20.
The Campaign for Greater Buffalo History, Architecture & Culture is the official tour provider for the Buffalo Marathon, and no one knows the city better than them. They have been chosen to lead runners, families, friends, and whoever wants a great tour and a great time, along a route known for its great architecture, absorbing history, and beautiful waterfront vistas.
$40 in advance. $50 at curb. Call 716-854-3749 for more info or to charge by phone. We will add an 11:00am departure if first tour sells out by May 12.
