Bills to host 2nd annual 50 Yard Finish

Posted Jun 27, 2013


Saturday, June 29, the Buffalo Bills will be hosting the 2nd annual 50 Yard Finish half marathon, 5K run and kid’s race.

The Bills have once again partnered with Eclipse Multisport and the Buffalo Niagara Sports Commission to bring the once-in-a-lifetime experience for the Western New York community to Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The races coincide with the NFL and Bills PLAY 60 message- helping fight childhood obesity by encouraging today’s youth to exercise at least 60 minutes per day.

Each race will begin from Ralph Wilson Stadium, as runners will travel through historic Orchard Park-right in the heart of Bills country. Runners will end by racing through the tunnel at Ralph Wilson Stadium, and watch themselves end on the Diamond Vision big-screen, as they finish on the 50.

The half marathon race begins at 7:00 am, 5K at 7:15 and the 1 mile kids race at 10:30 am.

Registration is still available until midnight EST. June 27th online. Fans can visit buffalobills.com/fiftyyardfinish.

Water and beverages provided compliments of Pepsi and Anheuser-Busch.

A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the Buffalo Bills Youth Foundation and Buffalo Niagara Sports Development.
