Running notebook: Around the park

Beth Weinberg posted this on Facebook under "Boston Marathon Solidarity Run." Lots of area runners apparently will gather at Delaware Park on Sunday morning to show their support. Here are the details from organizer Beth Weinberg:

There is no sense to be made of what happened in Boston this week, but so many of us are looking for a way to help. 

Please join me this Sunday morning in Delaware Park to take a few laps around the park, hang out and appreciate springtime in Buffalo, and make a donation to the American Red Cross or the One Fund.  The Red Cross provides emergency relief to our brothers and sisters in our community and around the world, whenever and wherever it is needed.  The One Fund has been set up to benefit the victim...s of the Boston Marathon bombing.

We'll have a water and snack station set up (by the Nottingham entrance of the golf course side), and I'll post more details as they are firmed up.  If you'd like to make a donation right now, please visit http://www.redcross.org/charitable-donations or http://onefundboston.org/.

#RunForBoston shirts are available through You and Who, with all profits going to the One Fund.  Shirts ordered before Friday at noon will be available for pickup at the event.   youandwho.com/run-for-boston.html

There will be an after-party at the Liberty Hound from 12:30pm-3:00pm, and a donation will be made to the One Fund for every pint sold. 

The Central Park Grill will also be holding an after-party, and will be making a donation to the One Fund.

While we won't be selling food at the event, Lloyd the taco truck will be on Nottingham for brunch.

Only one other race on Sunday - the Take-Off for Learning at the Jamestown/Chautauqua Airport. Starting time is 9 a.m.
