Posted: January 21, 2007
Exercise your "Bengal Spirit", put on your running or walking shoes and gear up for the Buffalo State College Alumni Association's 10th Annual Bengal 5K Run and Fun Walk, to be held Saturday, March 24, 2007, at 9:30 a.m. on the Buffalo State College campus. Proceeds from this event benefit the Alumni Association's Legacy Scholarship Fund, a scholarship awarded annually to a deserving student who is a child or grandchild of a Buffalo State graduate. This year's Bengal 5K is also being held in memory of Dr. Carmine A. Grande, Race Founder and Vice President of Institutional Advancement and is part of a special series of events celebrating the 135th anniversary of Buffalo State College.

Pre-registration will run through March 21, 2007 at a cost of $18, general; $16, Buffalo State faculty, staff, or alumnus; $10 student (any age). The fee increases after March 21. A special pre-registration discount for groups of ten or more Buffalo State Faculty/Staff members, Students representing a sports team, residence hall, club and/or organization, is being offered. This is a Champion Chip timing race and T-shirts will be given to the first 400 registrants.

Our race has also teamed up Canisius High School and Canisius College for a "new" series of races called the Queen City Triple Crown race series. Participate in the Chilly Challenge on February 25, Bengal 5K on March 24, and Shoes for the Shelter on April 15 and have a chance to win special awards based on cumulative times earned through participation in all three of these races.

Following the run/walk, enjoy great food and beverages, fellowship and fun at the popular Post-Race Bengal Brunch and a chance to win fabulous door prizes. Awards will be given to the top male and female runner overall, top three male and female runners in a variety of age groups, and top male and female Buffalo State faculty or staff runner, top male and female alumnus runner and top male and female student runner. Special awards are being given to the student group with the largest number of race participants and the Buffalo State faculty/staff team with the fastest time (based on the top five finishers).
