More than 800 runners and walkers — and hundreds of volunteers — are expected to take part in the 28th annual Linda Yalem Safety Run, a 5K run held on the North Campus to promote personal safety and remember UB student Linda Yalem.
The race will begin at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 24 at Alumni Arena. Registration is $25 for individual runners, $100 for a group of five runners. Registration fees support rape-prevention and safety awareness programming at UB.
The 5K USA Track and Field-certified course is one of the most popular races in Western New York. It is open to the casual, as well as the serious runner.
Post-race events will include food, entertainment and a kids’ dash.
The Linda Yalem Safety Run honors the memory of Yalem, a UB student who was raped and murdered in September 1990 on the Amherst Bike Path while training for the New York City Marathon.
