The Big Run 5K

June 6th | 6:30pm | Wilkeson Point, Buffalo Outer Harbor

Ready to run in the biggest Fleet Feet Sports event ever? Welcome to The Big Run! 

On June 6, Fleet Feet Sports locations nationwide will hold a local 5K race. All results will funnel up into a national leaderboard to determine: who is the fastest runner in the country?

But speed isn't the only thing that counts. We want to see the whole community participate because, seriously, running together rocks. Let us recap the ways:

  • You get to join Fleet Feet Sports communities across the country participating in a nationally-coordinated event in different locations all on the same day.
  • It's on a Wednesday—who couldn't use a mid-week pump-up?
  • Every finisher gets a medal. Not just any medal. A very cool, make-your-friends-jealous medal.
  • A short sleeve t-shirt for all registrants
  • Post race food
  • We know some people. And some pretty cool brands (cough, cough, Brooks). Let's just say, we're planning some fun raffle giveaways and category prizes.
  • Professional chip timing provided by YellowJacket Racing

The Big Run coincides with Global Running Day and is open to runners of all levels and abilities.
