Get Fired Up for Tri-C’s Virtual Autumn Blaze 5K
Proceeds from sixth annual race benefit three nonprofit organizations

Proceeds from the virtual race benefit Greater Cleveland Community Shares, the United Negro College Fund and United Way of Greater Cleveland. Tri-C launched the event in 2015 as part of its annual giving campaign to benefit the community.
Last year’s race raised more than $9,000 for the nonprofit agencies while attracting more than 350 participants.
The virtual format of Tri-C’s sixth annual Autumn Blaze 5K allows runners or walkers to complete the race on their own at any location at any time over an eight-day period — Oct. 18 through Oct. 25.
Finishers can submit their time to compete for medals by age group. To bring racers together, participants also can share photos on social media using #AutumnBlaze5K.
Online registration is available at tri-c.edu/autumnblaze5k. Registration is $25 for community members or $20 for Tri-C students. All preregistered runners and walkers will receive a cooling face mask with the Autumn Blaze logo.
Previously, the race has taken place at Western Campus. The event shifted to a virtual format this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
