5K Run and 1 Mile Walk

Promoting Increased Physical Activity For Children

The Cuyahoga County Board of Health, the Greater Cleveland YMCA and Discount Drug Mart are proud to sponsor the 8th Annual Run For Your Life 5K Run and 1 Mile Walk. This year's event will be held on Saturday, April 14th at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds in Berea, Ohio. Start time is 9:00 am, but participants should arrive earlier to allow enough time for registration and proper pre-race stretching and preparation.  

Pre-registration for the event is available through April 4, 2012. Your pre-registration includes a race t-shirt, gift bag and refreshments. Race day t-shirts will be available with paid registration while supply lasts. 5K race prizes will be awarded to the top 3 overall male and female finishers in each age group. Adult pre-registration is $15 or $20 the day of the event. Children's (14 & under) pre-registration is $10 or $15 day of the event.

The school district with the most participants registering for the race or walk will win up to $5,000! All students, parents and school employees count toward your school district's list of participants. Prizes will also be awarded to the 2nd and 3rd place school districts. 

Additional event information is available at the official web site of the CCBH Run For Your Life. You can find race day photos and results for all of the prior Run For Your Life events.
