Tradition A Constant at BG Stampede
Always run on a Labor Day weekend loaded with high-quality races, the Buffalo Gove Stampede has carved out a spot among those top-tier events, and the latest edition will take place at 8 a.m. on Sunday (Sept. 5). Start and finish are at Rylko Community Park at 951 McHenry Road for the 10K/5K races produced by the Buffalo Grove Park District. As they have done several times, the Rotich brothers (from Kenya) of West Des Moines, IA, won last year, Julius taking the 5K in 16:06 and Sammy winning the 10K in 35:12. I'm not sure who will be there this year, but the field is always large and deep. Best of luck to all participants.
