Dress in your favorite festive holiday-themed costume and join us for the seventh annual Selfless Elf 5K Run/Walk benefiting the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.  Enjoy a morning of fun for the entire family with light refreshments and a special appearance by Santa Claus! Your Foodbank looks forward to welcoming you as we raise funds and awareness for those struggling with hunger in our community.

  • The race will be chip-timed at both the start and finish lines to achieve the most accurate race results possible.
  • The race will have two separate categories during registration, running and competitive walking.
  • Run/Walk: If you plan to run during any portion of the race, please register as a Run/Walk.
  • Competitive Walkers: If you plan to walk the course in its entirety (no running), please register as a Competitive Walker.
  • Both runners and competitive walkers will begin at 8:00AM,but will have different bib colors to distinguish between the categories.

The race will begin and end at the Foodbank located at 350 Opportunity Parkway, Akron, Ohio, 44307; easily accessible from route 59 near downtown Akron. All participants will receive a long-sleeve special edition race t-shirt and coordinating souvenir striped socks. Register by December 6, 2019 to guarantee your t-shirt size.
