On your mark, get set, it’s a 5K at Eastwood Field!

Posted: August 6, 2011 in Uncategorized

Nearly 200 avid runners came out to Eastwood Field early Saturday morning. Not for a baseball game, but for the opportunity to take part in the Scrappers annual 5K race/walk. This year, proceeds from the event were donated to Akron Childrens Hospital-Mahoning Valley.  CASHLAND, REFRESH DENTAL MANAGEMENT, LASER HAIR REMOVAL, ATC HEALTHCARE SERVICES, MAXIM PEDIATRIC SERVICES, SAVANYU REFLEXOLOGY, THE BODY SHOP AEROBICS AND FITNESS, BRAYDICH CENTER FOR ADVANCED DENTISTRY, CORTLAND LANES and WALGREENS all sponsored the race and helped to make it truly successful.

On a perfect day for a run, participants ran throughout the Eastwood Mall complex and crossed the finish line at homeplate, right on the field.

Festivities got underway at 8:15 with the kid’s fun run. A swift jog around the warning track of Eastwood Field got the youngest trekkers’ blood pumping.

The horn sounded at 8:30 for the 5K and it was a rush all the way through. Members of the Scrappers front office staff were on hand to motivate the runners and hand out cups of water to the dashing athletes.

While everyone could be considered a champion for their efforts, the top three runners for both males and females received trophies and the winners of certain age groups earned plaques.
