What is the Virtual 5x5KGH? 

A series of five virtual 5Ks from July 26th (our 50th anniversary) to September 30. You can walk, run or jog anywhere you’d like – in your neighborhood, on a treadmill, to your favorite brewery or ice cream shop. Or you can try some of our suggested routes below, including a certified 5k course beginning and ending at Kevin Guest House.

You can do it on your own time, from anywhere – you don’t need to be a Buffalo native. Whether you’re a serious runner, doing it for a challenge, walking as a family or just looking for some fun we are happy you’re joining us!
