2023 Fit Family 5K

Register for 2023 Fit Family 5K

The 11th Annual Fit Family 5K Run and Walk Race takes place on Saturday, September 16, 2023.  The race is in conjunction with homecoming weekend for Walsh University.  It begins on the beautiful campus of Walsh University and winds through the roads of the surrounding North Canton community. This fast road race promotes health and wellness for all ages in our community.

Kids 9 & Under are welcome to participate in the 1/2 Mile Fun Run (2 track laps) prior to the 5K race. This is a great way to introduce our younger generation to being healthy and fit.  No strollers!

We will have activities for kids including face painting & games.

As you finish going down hill you will hear the noises of great music plus a cheering audience with loud cow bells encouraging you to push even harder for your PR! We want to make this a finish you won't forget.

All proceeds will benefit the Walsh University Doctor of Physical Therapy students by providing them with educational scholarships. Donations can also be given by going to this link fundraiser page, donations can also be made through the registration process.
