Not many races can claim a 37 year history like Ohio Valley Hospital and Kennedy Township's community race. Each year, we see competitive runners and families alike complete our hilly 5K course.

It's a community tradition that has changed from a 10K and bike race to a 5K; drawing a few hundred participants every year. We hope you'll become part of our history by signing up for 2018.

The race is open to runners and walkers (dogs on a leash and strollers are welcome to try out the course, as well).
