22nd Annual 5k run/2 mile walk
We are back for our 22nd year serving the Olmsted community!
Our 5k run starts in front of the Olmsted Falls Middle School, takes you through the Olmsted Township Fire Department, and back to finish at the Olmsted Falls Middle School! Our walkers start with the runners in front of the middle school, takes you to the top of the Fitch Rd Overpass, and back to finish in front of the middle school.
Our 2nd annual kids run offers multiple routes starting from just 50 meters, to 400 meters, and the longest route is just under 1-miles. The kids run is designated for children 10 and under and with the three route options appropriate for almost all ages and ability levels! All routes will stay within the Olmsted Falls Middle School campus.
After the run/walk please stay and join us for post-race refreshments and food, entertainment for the children, trophy/medal ceremony, and Chinese raffle!
On-line registration will be available January 1st, 2019. Registration has changed this year. Now you will have the option to register and add-on a t-shirt if you wish. If you do not want a t-shirt you can just register for whatever event you plan on participating in and continue on to check-out.
We will run/walk in rain/snow (hopefully not!)/ or shine! There is a no refund policy for your registration if you wish not to participate because of weather that is solely your choice. If severe weather is present and we feel the safety of our participants are at risk we will cancel the event. There will be no make-up date.
