Pink Buffalo Holds the Monkey Face Half

August 24, 2015

No, there isn't a new formation in the park in the shape of a Pink Buffalo. They are a team of race enthusiasts behind the Monkey Face Half Marathon and 4 Mile trail running races held here on Saturday, August 22.

The color pink is "just because." The full explanation is here

The race takes its name from the park icon, Monkey Face. The runners made a pair of counter-clockwise loops for the half marathon.
