Lockheed Martin Towpath Freedom 5k

November 10, 2018

Register today for our Veterans Day 5k!

The Lockheed Martin Towpath Freedom 5k is a family-friendly run/walk to commemorate the completion of the Towpath Trail in Summit County and to honor our military veterans. Beginning at Lock 3 in downtown Akron, the 3.1 mile route will kick off on Main Street and lead runners along the Towpath Trail, looping back to Lock 3 for refreshments and awards. All proceeds go toward the continued development of the Towpath Trail and connector trails. 

Same-day registration will open at 7:30am, and start time will be at 9:00am. This event includes an opening ceremony and awards for the top finishers in each age category, as well as pre-run and post-run snacks. Moisture-wicking shirts will be included with registration to those who sign up before October 26. 

Registration is FREE for the first 35 veterans! If you are a veteran, please contact Sara Hart at sahart@ohioeriecanal.org to receive your free registration.
