Lyme WNY 5K

Orchard park, NY

Help us take a bite out of Lyme!
Please join us on Sunday May 5 2024 at Wayland Brewery in Orchard Park for the 1st annual Lyme WNY 5K to support Lyme disease. The run/walk will be held at 9:30 a.m. We hope to bring awareness to the community over how to prevent tick bites as well as if you have Lyme disease what support sources you have locally. All proceeds go to Lyme WNY for a scholarship awarded to those in financial need of assistance with their Lyme treatment.

The race will start and finish at Wayland Brewery. We are planning to use the proposed course shown below pending approval from local officials. There will be one water stop located near the mid point and bottled water will be provided at the finish line.
