Register for the 2018 Chase Your Tail 5k

This Oct. 14 event has three in-person options: a 5k run, and a 5K walk, nearly half waterfront on the Towpath, timed by EnMotive Ohio as part of the Ohio Challenge Series, or a 1 mile non-timed walk (Doggie Dash).  You are permitted to bring your dog on a leash for all events.  The race is on the roads and Towpath, and begins and ends at Summit Lake Community Center, 380 W Crosier St, Akron, OH 44311.  This is a very pretty and newer section of the Towpath, called The Divide, and takes you over the floating Towpath Trail across the middle of Summit Lake.  All event participants will receive a race t-shirt and finisher's medal. There is a virtual race option as well - participants will receive a race t-shirt and medal for participating. This event benefits One of A Kind Pet Rescue, a no-kill, no time-limit shelter whose mission is to save the lives of animals in imminent danger of euthanasia and enrich the lives of people through rescue, spaying/neutering, adoption, and advocacy on behalf of homeless pets.  Packet pick up is on race-day only, beginning at 7:30 AM.  5K events start at 9:00 AM!
