I headed up to the small town of Wyoming, Delaware, to run the Great Wyoming Buffalo Stampede 10K for the second time. The race also includes a 5K. The last time I ran this race was in 2015, and I think the heat was what kept me away for several years. It was hot and humid for this year's race, as well, and there was little shade, but it was still well-organized and fun.
The 10K had five water stops, including people that would spray or dump water on you, which was great! The course was mostly an out-and-back that was through farmlands. It went past Fifer Orchards. It was a flat course.
Parking was easy, free and a short walk away from the start. There were plenty of bathrooms and porta-potties. The race was affordable ($35 during race week) and benefits the Downstate Delaware Striders and Riders scholarship fund. In addition to the race shirt (there were men's and women's cuts), runners received a free Italian ice from a nearby shop, along with a beer and watermelon and peaches.
I enjoyed the race, even though I wasn't able to run as fast as I'd hoped because of the heat and humidity — it's in mid-July. The only thing I didn't like other than the weather was that the pins were too big and left holes in my shirt, so you might want to bring your own bib fasteners.
