Buffalo Jin Jog

Some people jog for fun. Others jog for a myriad other reasons, including getting in shape, socializing, or as a way to enjoy the great outdoors. Speaking of the social angle, each year Black Button Distillery organized the Buffalo Jin Jog, where participants “run, walk, and/or stumble” through a 1k run around the block that starts and finishes at the distillery – 149 Swan Street (Swan, Michigan, Seneca, Berrick Alley). 

This is one of the more unusual runs in the city, partially because runners are handed a martini glass full of water at the beginning a race. Runners must spill as little water as possible, which earns them matching points that help to support the Kelly for Kids Foundation. Runners are handed a cocktail after the run, and “a refresher shot” mid-race. Given the previous details, runners know what to expect from the race. Also, for those who don’t want to run, they can still join in on the fun – click here to find out all of the details.
