Buchanan Running Club is hosting their first annual Buchanan Day 5K Race/Walk on September 16th starting at 10:30am; the same day as their annual “Buchanan Day”, which is a family fun village tradition.  This celebratory portion of the event is scheduled to start at 12pm.  Both the race and the Buchanan Day festivities will take place rain or shine.  At this time, we would like to invite you to play a very special part in this wonderful tradition and celebration of our Village of Buchanan, its residents, and BRC’s ongoing initiative to promote outdoor fitness for a healthier community.
