Wellness Walk & Run

The Wellness Walk & Run is a family-friendly 5K event taking place on September 5 at 9:00 AM that is a follow-up to last year's exciting Birthday Bash Dash! This year, a walking division has been added so you can run or walk while on a scenic, multi-terrain course, partially on the Akron General Wellness Trails in near Stow City Hall.

The event benefits Akron General’s Muffins for Mammograms program, which helps uninsured and underinsured women qualify for a free breast exam. The event is in conjunction with the Stow Summer Sunset Blast!

Adults are $25 and kids 12 & under are just $15 to participate! Awards will be given to winners of their respective age groups, and plenty of prizes will be raffled off to all who sign up!

Participants will receive an official race t-shirt, a delicious muffin from Main Street Gourmet (blueberry or double chocolate), a Subway sandwich, tons of race bag swag, and access to an exclusive wellness fair that will include massages, strength tests, bike safety demonstrations, games, a live DJ, and more!

Stollers and leashed dogs are welcomed.
