Oct. 16 race at Western Campus will benefit three nonprofit agencies
Dash through the fall colors while doing some good this October during the second annual Autumn Blaze 5K at the Western Campus of Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®).
Proceeds from the run/walk will be divided evenly between United Way of Greater Cleveland, Greater Cleveland Community Shares and United Negro College Fund. Tri-C launched the race in 2015 as part of its annual giving campaign to benefit the community.
Last year’s race raised more than $7,000 for the nonprofit agencies. This year’s goal is $8,500.
The Autumn Blaze 5K begins at 9 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, at Tri-C’s Western Campus in Parma. Set a personal-best time on the fast and flat course that winds through the campus grounds at 11000 Pleasant Valley Road.
Online registration is available at www.hermescleveland.com through 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 14. Pre-registration for the race is $20 for community members or $15 for Tri-C students. All pre-registered runners and walkers will receive a T-shirt.
On-site registration also will be available the day of the race beginning at 8 a.m., with the cost being $25 for community members or $20 for Tri-C students. T-shirts for day-of registrants will be available as quantities allow.
Awards will be given to the top three overall male and female runners and the top three finishers in the following age groups: 11 and younger; 12-14; 15-19; 20-24; 25-29; 30-34; 35-39; 40-44; 45-49; 50-54; 55-59; 60-64; and 65 and older.
