Also on Saturday, September 10th during the South Buffalo Irish Festival and at Cazenovia Park, The Finn McCool 4-Mile Odyssey is taking place.  Buffalo Hiking Group member Jason Mendola is trying to get a BHG Team together to participate in this event.

What is The Finn McCool 4-Mile Odyssey?

Participants navigate a 4 mile course loaded with challenging obstacles and difficult terrain, all building up to the moment when the race is over – and the real fun begins!
Because the Odyssey isn’t about just crossing the finish line.
The Odyssey is About:

Looking the part – outrageous costumes are the best!
The most fun a person can have while punishing their body
Seeing fellow “Irishmen” in their natural state – smiling!
Where flowing beer meets not so flowing obstacles
Celebrating being Irish – even when you aren’t!

After Party Spnsored by Guinness!

Proceeds benefit local charities, where we work, play and live .
