We have decided to re-schedule the Buffalo Run to Dec of 2021. Due to the rapidly developing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, it is our responsibility to protect the health and safety of our runners, volunteers, staff and host communities. Full refunds will be issued to all registered participants.


Join us for the seventh annual Buffalo Run at Palmetto Bluff featuring a 10K, 30K, or 50K course. This trail race benefits the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy. Held on Sunday, December 13th, the Buffalo Run 6.2-mile trail winds deep into the ancient maritime forests of Palmetto Bluff. Don't be afraid to get a little muddy -- it's all a part of the experience.

30K and 50K Relay Teams. Gather your friends and compete in the 30K and 50K endurance races with either a 3-person team for the 30K or a 5-person team for the 50K.
