The Buffalo Bills will host the seventh annual 50 Yard Finish 5K and Kids Run on Saturday, June 23 at New Era Field. The 5K portion of the event begins at 9 a.m. on a certified course that starts on Abbott Road in front of the stadium and finishes through the player tunnel on the 50-yard line of the Bills field. Following the completion of the 5K, it’s the kids turn to finish at the 50 as a children’s fun mile begins at 10:30 a.m.
The first 1,200 registrants will receive a race shirt, a souvenir finisher medal, and will enjoy a post-race celebration and awards ceremony on the field featuring Billy Buffalo and special Bills guests. IMPACT Sports Performance will be part of the festivities as they will lead all runners in a pre-race warmup at the start line.
Spectators are permitted in New Era Field to cheer on runners and take photographs. The scoreboard will also broadcast the race participants as they complete the 50 Yard Finish.
