Everyone likes to have a race in September because the weather is traditionally a bit cooler. I'll take time to note the loss of the Holy Angels Academy race, because the school closed over the summer. This one got washed out a year ago, and I was looked forward to trying again this year.
Here's the weekend schedule from Buffalorunners.com:
* Peach Festival 5K, 493 Center St. in Lewiston, 9 a.m. Saturday, 297-5831.
* Scrub Run 5K, Cazenovia Park in Buffalo, 9:30 a.m. Saturday, 706-2104. It's a new race, and it's easy to wonder if the $25 (until last week) and $30 (through raceday) prices will scare some people off. It's always a danger unless there's a natural constituency.
* Derby Fair 5K, 7431 Erie Road in Derby, 10 a.m. Saturday, 947-0945.
* Headway Walk, Run & Wheel, 5K, The Hatch in Buffalo, 9:30 a.m. Sunday, 408-3103.
