5K Returns to Harry Clever Field
Registrations are being accepted for the 2015 Geib Glowway Run 5K, sponsored by the Kent State Tuscarawas Alumni Association. Open to the public, the 5K run and 1.5 mile Fun Run/Walk will be held Sept. 12 at Harry Clever Field in New Philadelphia. Registration begins at 6:30 p.m. and the race at 7:30 p.m.
“This is the second year we will hold the race at Harry Clever field,” said Chad Conrad, director of advancement at Kent State Tuscarawas and a member of the alumni association. “To add more interest to the race, we have changed the course. I encourage everyone to participate and get their glow on to make the future brighter for some local, hardworking individuals!”
Proceeds from the 5K and Fun Run/Walk go to the Kent State Tuscarawas Alumni Scholarship fund. “Join us in some highflying fun and help change lives here in the Tuscarawas Valley,” added Conrad.
Pre-registration fee is $20, and $15 for students and alumni members. Entry fee the day of the race is $25. Preregistration deadline is Aug. 21. The first 100 entrants will receive a free T-shirt.
Trophies will be awarded to the top three male and female runners overall, and medals for top three finishers in each male and female age group. Refreshments will be served at the end of the race.
