The Buffalo 15K + 5K are two of the races the help keep Shelby Farms Park and Shelby Farms Greenline running! While thousands of people run the trails at Shelby Farms Park each year, the trails run on community support, and proceeds from races like these help keep the Park and Greenline in tip-top shape all year round.

More than 850 runners hit the trails for this year’s races on November 9, including our friends at Girls on the Run Memphis! After racing through some of the most scenic areas of the Park, runners enjoyed a high-energy party at the finish line complete with a DJ, tasty snacks from McAlister’s Deli and McCartney Produce, and cold brews from Meddlesome Brewing Company!


We’re grateful for everyone who participated, including the more than 100 volunteers who supported this event by monitoring the race courses, handing out refreshments, cleaning up after the race, and more! If you would like to learn more about volunteering at Park events, click here. 


This year’s races wouldn’t have been possible without our sponsors. We want to give a big shoutout to the partners below who helped make this event possible.



Your next chance to run a race that supports the Park will be the BuffaGLO run on January 4, 2020! Click here to learn more about this cool run and sign up to kick start your new year with a race through the lights of Starry Nights, presented by International Paper!
