Think this 5K will be hard? A caveman would have done it in mammoth skin shorts and bare feet!
Registration is now open for Geauga Park District’s eighth annual trail-pounding, heart-pumping, cave-costume-wearing athletic event, the Caveman Crawl 5K Trail Run & 1-Mile Fun Walk, on Sunday, June 10th, at The West Woods.
All ages are welcome to walk or run the 5K or walk the mile, with all funds benefiting the Chip Henry Institute for Outdoor Adventure, getting kids out into the parks through youth programming including summer camps for youth entering grades 5 through 10.
Race day registration starts at 7:00 a.m., and the race itself steps off at 9:00 a.m., with free food and awards afterwards. Many more details, online registration and a course map can now be viewed at the new Geauga Park District under Activities, then Special Events & Art Shows. Early sign-up guarantees you a race T-shirt and cheaper fee of $20, so sign up today and start warming up for some fun!
