Lest we Forget! Run to the Wall was established to memorialize all military service personnel, past, present, and future. Past participants told us, we have a challenging “hilly” course but that they look forward to coming back year after year. No matter what your athletic ability we are confident that you will be able to complete the course. Many use our 10K course to prepare for the Akron Marathon. Run to the Wall is a race that brings the community together to commemorate all service members especially those who gave the most precious gift, one that we can never repay ~ their life.
TOGETHER we can make a difference and truly honor, remember, and celebrate all of our military service members.
The back of your T-shirt may be personalized with the name of the special military hero in your life for a $10 donation.
All proceeds from Run to the Wall are used to continue to build and maintain the Ohio Veterans' Memorial Park, which is run and maintained by an ALL volunteer staff.
NO REFUNDS and/or REIMBURSEMENTS.
All packets and race-day T-shirts are to be picked up race morning beginning at 6:00 am. Packet pick up will be at the park.
Hang around an enjoy some fruit, cookies, and more after your run.
Participants can enjoy a pulled pork sandwich after their run on us.

Did you catch a peek a the medals for 2017? I had to throw one on a scale, and at 6 ounces it is easily 3 to 4 times the weight of any medals I have won in the past, and almost 6 times the weight of most! The medal is almost 5 inches wide by 2-1/2 inches tall, again dwarfing those in my personal stash.
Speaking of medals, we award up to 252 medals ... that is 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for: male and female divisions; overall and in 13 age groups for each running event, the 5k, 10k and half-marathon. We do not provide participation medals.
Awards and give-aways will be given immediately after the race. Awards and T-shirts will not be mailed.
The 5K Walk and Run are out-and-back courses, starting at the park and proceeding north up Cleveland-Massillon Road and Van Buren to the turn-around point approximately 1.5 miles north of the park entrance.

See the story below regarding changes to our half-marathon event.
In addition to changing our half-marathon, we have moved our 10K route to follow along a similar route (it is still and out-and-back course), allowing us to better serve participants of both the 10K and Half-Marathon. While we are still working on logistics, we are trying to place a porta-john on the 10K & Half Marathon routes near the 10K turn around. More details to come.
2017 Water Stops
* 1.5 Mile Mark
* 3.0 Mile Mark (and Porta-John) (and turn)

Join us for our second year of the half-marathon run.
Sorry, due to scheduled highway construction we had to modify our route to avoid the corner of Van Buren and Vanderhoof Roads. We found a minor adjustment that allows us to maintain our Half-Marathon course, and should offer us the opportunity to provide better service to runners on the course allowing us to better serve participants of both the 10K and Half-Marathon; and while we are still working on logistics, we are trying to place a porta-john on the 10K & Half Marathon routes near the 10 K turn around, which means the half-marathoners will pass the porta-john near the 3 mile and 8.5 mile mark. More details to come... . Route changes are identified below with strike-out and bold.
2017 Water Stops
* 1.5 Mile Mark
* 3.0 Mile Mark (and Porta-John)
* 6.0 Mile Mark
* 8.5 Mile Mark (and Porta-John)
