This annual 5K has changed to virtual this year in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency. If you have already registered for the race, you may elect to participate in the virtual race or request a refund. New virtual race registrations are welcome, and for those who make a donation when they sign up, there is a dollar-for-dollar discount up to $20.

IMPORTANT: The registration discount for donation is part of the Sign Up registration transaction only, not through the Just Donate option.

The virtual race is a run/walk 5K at a place of your own choosing (even on a treadmill) between May 1 and May 31. Results will be self-reported, and there will be no official place awards given this year. You will still receive a commemorative race t-shirt. New this spring, participants can donate to support the Akron Summit County COVID-19 Emergency Support Fund.

The traditional chip-timed race around the scenic Munroe Falls Lake has been canceled. Please refer to Summit Metro Parks COVID-19 Updates for current guidelines for safe park use.

Runners 14 and younger are free with at least 1 adult registration. 
All participants, including free runners, must be registered.

Race Details
Run your virtual race between May 1 and May 31 on a course you choose - even on a treadmill.
We have changed our refund policy and refunds for race registrations are available due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. 
Paid participants who register by the deadline, ages 15 and older, will receive a free shirt. T-shirts for ages 14 and under may be purchased during online registration for $10 each.

Packet Pickup
Additional information regarding the race will be sent by email. Race shirts will be mailed or a new pickup method identified that is safe during the COVID-19 outbreak.
