A Yearly Tradition

Since 1991, UB has welcomed over 1,500 runners and walkers, and more than 600 volunteers, who believe in the importance of taking control over our own personal safety.

On Sept. 28, 2014, the University at Buffalo is proud to present our 25th annual Linda Yalem Safety Run, a 5K run held at UB's North Campus to promote personal safety and to remember UB student Linda Yalem.

The Yalem Run is one of UB's most enduring traditions and is an official qualifying race for Buffalo News Runner of the Year series. But the race is open to casual runners and walkers too.

Families, students, UB staff and faculty - come and enjoy the fun.

Your registration fee covers the cost of your participation in the race, time chip/number, finish line and results services, a free race memento, Kid’s Dash, and a free post-race party including food and entertainment. Race proceeds support safety awareness and rape prevention programming at the University at Buffalo. Join us and remember to stay safe when you run or walk. Never run or walk alone, be aware of your surroundings, and take precautions on unfamiliar routes. Here are more safety tips.
