Lake Band Hosts Fifth Annual 5K Run/Walk Easter Weekend
The entire Lake community is invited to participate in the fifth annual Lake Band 5K Walk/Run Saturday, April 15, 2017, with all proceeds used to support all students enrolled in the Lake Band program in grades 5-12. It is being held on Easter weekend this year, so two easy pre-races for children ages 3 to 5 and 6 to 11 are also planned before the 5K.
The Bunny Run (ages 3 to 5) will be a half lap around the stadium track, and each participant will receive a free Hartville Chocolate Factory Easter Bunny. In addition, first, second and third place finishers will receive a larger chocolate bunny. The Bunny Run race will begin at 8:15 a.m. The Fun Run (ages 6-11) will be a complete lap around the stadium track, and each participant will also receive a free Hartville Chocolate Factory Easter Bunny. In addition, first, second and third place finishers will also receive a larger chocolate bunny. This race will begin at 8:30 a.m.
If you would like to pre-register for any of these races (including the 5K) visit https://runsignup.com/Race/OH/Uniontown/LakeBandRun.
Registration will also be available at the stadium on race day beginning at 7 a.m. The 5K Walk/Run begins at 9 a.m., and its start and finish will be in beautiful Blue Streak Stadium. This race is a part of the SUBWAY/Ohio Challenge Series races, and includes an official USATF certified course. We will offer awards for both walkers and runners; both categories will be timed events. Members of the Lake High Band will also provide live musical encouragement to all runners and walkers completing the course.
Following the 5K race, awards will be presented to the overall top three finishers regardless of age and gender in both the walking and running categories. First, second, and third place finishers in each age group will also receive an award.
After the race, runners/walkers will receive snacks including Schearer’s potato chips and water, a medal, a free T-Shirt (if [pre-registered), a voucher for a free 6” Subway sandwich, and a goodie bag. A few extra T-Shirts will be ordered for those who register on the day of the event; those will be given out on a first come, first serve basis.
We thank race sponsors Mitchell Piping, the Brott Family, Starkey Law Firm, United American Securities, Hartville Chocolate Factory, and the Lake Community Federal Credit Union for their support.
Invite family members and friends to join you in participating in this fun, healthy Easter weekend event Saturday, April 15, 2017!
