Munroe Falls, Ohio

Munroe Falls, Ohio

Sun 12th May 2024

1 race

Organiser's Description

Run, jog or walk to celebrate Mom during this annual 5K from the Summit Metro Parks. The stroller-friendly course for this chip-timed race travels twice around the scenic Munroe Falls Lake. Race proceeds benefit the Summit Metro Parks Foundation.
Because the course overlays the park entrance/exit road, the park’s entrance gate will close at 7:50 a.m. and will be re-opened by park rangers after participants clear the first lap.
A choice of a free race t-shirt or native tree sapling is included with each paid registration, including the 14 under kids’ category, while supplies last. Register early to ensure availability.
The event is held rain or shine. Refunds are available through May 1, 2023, but not after. The course is not fully ADA-compliant, but wheelchair participants and jogging strollers are welcome. If you plan to use an adaptive device on the course, please contact the race in advance. The course surface is asphalt.
Packet PickupPre-race packet pickup is available Friday, May 10, and Saturday, May 11 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm (1828 Smith Rd., Akron).
