Additional puzzle challenge information can be found at https://buffalomarathon.org/puzzlechallenge-2020.


We are proud to announce our first Virtual Summer Puzzle Challenge, consisting of 4 different distances.

  • 5k or 3.1 miles
  • 10k or 6.2 miles
  • Half Marathon 13.1 miles
  • Full Marathon or 26.2 miles
Unlike the events on Marathon Weekend where the distances are completed all at once in Buffalo,  this virtual challenge allows you to accumulate the distance and time on your schedule, at your pace and at a location of your choice.  This allows everyone to participate and earn the medal. 
Complete the distances starting on 6/1/2020 through 8/9/2020 for a total of 48.6 miles.  For each distance completed you will earn one puzzle piece that when complete will create the coolest medal of the summer.
