St Francis de Sales Parish

70th Anniversary Celebration 5k Run/Walk

This fun 5k walk/run is being put on in celebration of St Francis de Sales Parish's 70th anniversary year.  We strive to bring together our parish cluster community by inviting everyone to enjoy the natural beauty of our local state park and support life and the Barberton Pregnancy Center.  This course trail run will take you through forests of singing birds, beautiful lake views, and past the state park's sandy beach.  Due to the nature of the trails, caution should be taken when running.  There will be a water station at the mid way point.

All participants who register by August 27th will receive a commemorative shirt tri-blend shirt. Runners who register after August 27th will not receive a shirt. Water and snacks will be provided after the race at the finish line. This is a chip timed race.

Packet pick-up will be at the Bay Side Picnic Area on Friday, September 7th, from 5pm to 8 pm.  If you are not able to come at that time, there will be additional packet pick-up time on Saturday starting at 7:45am before the run.

The starting line will be also be at the Bay Side Picnic Area and the course will run throughout the park
