Up Up and Away is Presented by Northwest Ohio Orthopedics and Sports Medicine (NWO) and sponsored by the Findlay Striders. The UUA is a Northwest Ohio classic race! 2016 will be our 14th and we're hoping for another fantastic year. This event is held in conjunction with the Findlay Flag City Balloon Fest (Hot Air Balloons) and every dollar raised goes directly to Hancock County Special Olympics. Many participants come for the race and stay for the Balloon Fest. As always, our staging area will be on the South Side of Emory Adams Park in Findlay, OH (off 6th street) near the baseball diamonds. Our race course is flat and fast! A PERFECT opportunity to check your fitness progress for a fall marathon or tune up for Cross Country season. Our race course is certified, and chip timing will be utilized. We continue to start at 8:00 in the morning to "beat the heat" that is sure to come!

We will have two kids events immediately following the conclusion of the 5K. Kids of all ages can participate in a 1/2 mile or 1 mile fun run. Registration for kids events will be held on race day only and will be $2.00.

For the safety of all participants, no pets, rollerblades, or bicycles will be permitted on the course. All registrations are non-refundable and non transferable.

Registration will be available in person during the same times as packet pickup. Registration after pre-registration periods will be $30.00, and shirts will be $5.00 will supplies last.
