Special thanks to our sponsors for making the 50 Yard Finish possible:  Visit Buffalo Niagara, Buffalo Bills, and Ingram Micro.


The 50 Yard Finish race is presented by Eclipse Multi-Sport, the Buffalo Niagara Sports Commission, and The Buffalo Bills.  We also thank the Buffalo Bills for their generosity in lending their awesome stadium to the great people of Buffalo!


Refund Policy:

We at Eclipse Multi-Sport understand that life happens, even when you plan otherwise.  We plan for our races according to the number of preregistered athletes, so unfortunately refunds will not be honored. We hope you understand that we make commitments to organizations that we donate to based on registrations and need to honor those commitments. 

Already registered?! Race changes available:
Some of our registered racers contact us to let us know that life has thrown them a few curve balls since the day they registered. For a limited time, we are allowing RACE CHANGES - if you are already registered for the half, you can change to the 5K. If you are registered for the 5K, you can change to the half. Please be aware that there is a difference in price depending on when you change (from 5K to Half Marathon) and a processing fee.  You will be responsible for those fees when you change.   If you are changing from half to 5K, there will not be a refund for the difference.   

Transfers from one person to another are not honored.
