What we're about

The Buffalo Chips Running Club is the Sacramento area’s largest, oldest, and most friendly running club. Although some speedy Chips belong, the majority of our members are beginning runners, recreational joggers, and middle- to back-of-the-pack fun run participants. We have a walkers group of Buffalo Chips too, and a very active youth program, the Chip Youths. Join us for safe, friendly, advice-filled runs, jogs, or walks at one of our many workout locations. You need not be a member to participate, but once you give it a try, you won’t be able to resist joining to take advantage of all the great perks available to card-carrying Buffalo Chips. You can join at http://www.buffalochips.com/join/. Non-members are required to acknowledge and sign a liability waiver before participation.
