Buffalo Superhero Race and Wellness Walk – Unleash Your Inner Superhero!

The Buffalo Superhero Race has become one of the most anticipated runs of the year, partially due to the fantastic outfits that are worn on the day of the race, and partially due to all of the post race festivities that take place. 

The Superhero Race is a USA Track and Field sanctioned 5k and Wellness Walk that benefits those affected by mental illness. That means that runners not only get to dress up in their favorite superhero costumes, they also get to be superheroes for the day by doing a good deed for others. And that’s what being a superhero is all about. 

Everyone is invited to join in on this special run, no matter athletic ability or age. Come solo, or come along with a team of superheroes of your choosing.

The 2016 race includes:

  • Split times are called at the one and two mile markers
  • Timing of your race is calculated by an electronic chip time, to reduce wait time for your running results

Superhero-Buffalo-NY-2016-1Prizes are awarded for fasted competitors and best costume.
