It's the 11th Annual AkRun & Crawl! Back by popular demand, we are doing an encore presentation of the AFTER DARK theme - with a Flashlight Glow Run along the Towpath Trail followed by an epic bar crawl in the Merriman Valley on May 20, 2017 with a race start of 9:00 PM
Our 5K run follows the scenic Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail through the Merriman Valley before joining your friends for a pub crawl to celebrate your finish in style. Participants receive glow necklaces and accessories to wear while running, and are encouraged to bring flashlights to illuminate the trail.
Registration also gets you an official AkRun & Crawl t-shirt, and a beer mug for access to special drinks and free food at the 5 participating bars: Johnny J’s, Shots, Woody's Tavern, The Corner Bar, and The Lazy Gator. There will even be cake and special "birthday drinks" to celebrate the 10th anniversary of AkRun & Crawl!
Race registration begins at 7 PM, with a 9 PM race start in front of BCG & Co., located at 1735 Merriman Road in Akron. Join us at 9:30 p.m. as we kick off the Pub Crawl at Johnny J's, located in the Liberty Commons Shopping Plaza at 1282 Weathervane Lane, Akron, OH 44313. Race results will also be announced at this location.
