The Flatliner. Self explanatory. The Flatliner is typically a springtime running series held on the lower portion of Chestnut Ridge Park but for 2021 we are on Sunday mornings after the lower section of the park officially closes to road traffic making a safe, vehicle free course. A paved and hilly 3-mile loop of Chestnut Ridge's lower road section makes the Flatliner a must-do. The Flatliner series pits you against the ridge on twisty and hilly paved park roads in this 4-consecutive week race series. Race it or walk it-all are welcome to take part in the series or individual weekly events. Pre-register for the series and save time at check-in or sign-up at individual events every week.
Newton Road parking lot (look for race tent). Rain, snow or shine(Unless Park is closed due to weather since this section is not plowed). Restrooms are available up at the Casino Building and you will need to enter via the main entrance to access the Casino. $15 per event on-site weekly per race. Series t-shirts are available pre-order and are they slick. Series awards in 5-year age groups sorted by your top-three finish times. The Flatliner Series helps support HEART Animal Shelters of WNY.
Pets are prohibited on-course during races.
Age groups & Category awards for those completing at least 3 of the 4 races using your best 3 times: Overall Male, Female & Masters awards. 5-year USATF age groups. U14 through 80+ custom medals top three places each age group.
If a race is postponed or canceled we will do our best to consolidate the series or extend by a week or so.
