MINERVA – Runners, walkers or anyone looking for some family fun is invited to join the Minerva Area Christian School for its annual Jolly Jaunt Road Race on Saturday, June 2.
This is a family-centered event focused on creating an atmosphere that promotes health, wellness, families and fun. In addition to the 5k, there will be a 5k relay, a one-mile fun run/walk, a kid’s mile and a tot trot.
Race-day registration opens at 8 a.m. at MACS, which shares its facilities with Minerva First Christian Church at 300 West Lincoln Way, Minerva. The 5k and 5k relay begin at 9 a.m., followed by the kid’s mile at 9:45 and the tot trot at 10 a.m. The kid’s mile is open to children ages 12 and under, while the tot trot is for children younger than 8. The relay is open to four-person teams.
Entry fees are $18 for the 5k ($12 for early registration); $28 for the 5k relay ($20 early); $12 for the fun run/walk or the kid’s mile ($8 early); and the tot trot is $5 or free for a child participating with an adult registered for the 5k, with a limit of one child per registered adult. A discount of $2 per racer is offered for families who register four or more family members. Early registration closes Tuesday, May 29. For a registration form, call 330-868-5728 or 330-868-4151 or stop by the church, Kishman’s IGA or other local businesses.
The first 100 registered racers will receive a free T-shirt, and door prizes from area businesses will be given out during an awards ceremony following the 5k. All proceeds go to Minerva Area Christian School to provide scholarship funds for students in need.
The course is relatively flat with a few small inclines and is primarily paved, beginning and ending at MACS/First Christian Church, 300 West Lincoln Way, Minerva.
