Calling all ULTRA RUNNERS. Memphis finally has a new 50 mile race. Join us at Shelby Farms Park on March 17, 2018 for the inaugural Big Buffalo 50 benefitting Kids Kicking Cancer. All race distances will run a 6 mile loop on the paved and dirt trails of Shelby Farms Park. The 50 mile run will loop the course 8 times and the 50k run and relay will loop the course 5 times.

Not up to run 50 miles or 50k? Don't worry, we have an option for you too. Create a 5 person team and run as a relay. Teams consist of 5 person teams (or less if desired). Each team member will run the loop one time and hand off to your next team member.

Race headquarters will be located at the new ampitheater of Shelby Farms Park making spectating, and participant access a breeze. Come expecting a great race, even better party, and lots of miles of fun.
