WNY’s Most Delicious 5K, The Gril-Mato, Is Almost Here
Who says it is too cold in Buffalo for running? Don't tell that to those who are lacing up their shoes for the Gril-Mato 5K.
February is here and while we wait for the spring to arrive and the snow to melt, there is a fun 5K race that is coming this weekend in Orchard Park. The Gril-Mato 5K race will take place Saturday February 19th at 9am. Unlike other races, there is a hot bowl of soup and a grilled cheese sandwich waiting at the finish line for runners.
What better combination can you think of in the cold of February than a toasty Grill Cheese and a steamy Tomato Soup – The Girl-Mato
February 19, 2022 at 9 am you can run a 5K course on the streets of Orchard Park. Waiting for you at the end of the 5K is a heart warming Girl-Mato supplied by The Byrd House.
Runner's Roost has added a second location on Transit Rd in East Amherst. They have also added a new 3D foot scanner that will make custom insoles for your shoes. If you have had any issues with pain while running or walking, this scanner will show exactly where your feet need extra support. I had my feet scanned and am looking forward to running with my new inserts as well!
The groundhog may be calling for six more weeks of winter, but those who love to run in Western New York aren't going to let the cold and snow stop us from competing. Especially if there is a hot lunch waiting for us at the end.
