The countdown to race day!   
RACE DAY INFORMATION

Designed for runners and walkers of all ages and fitness levels, the USA Track and Field sanctioned Buffalo Superhero Run welcomes all interested participants regardless of experience. In order to best serve seasoned runners, split times are called at the one and two mile markers. This year the timing of your race is calculated by an electronic chip time, to reduce wait time for your running results.

  • 5K race and race walk
  • 1.8-mile wellness walk
  • Family friendly after-party featuring:
    • Raffles
    • Live Music
    • Food & Drink
    • Kid’s Activities
    • Costume Contest
    • Fun photography


PARKING

Thurman Thomas family speaks out against mental health stigma.

By Michael J. Billoni


Tears come to the eyes of Thurman and Patti Thomas when they recall the 2014 spring evening they feared the worst for their teen aged daughter, Annika.

Her car was not in the driveway and immediately chills went down their backs because of her episodes with anxiety and depression. They checked the house and called her before notifying authorities...
