July 13, 2012 by  

On Sunday, August 19, the Santarelli Memorial 5K Cross Country Race will take place at Lorain County Community College located at 1005 North Abbe Road in Elyria, Ohio. This event begins at 6:00 pm.

The closing date for registration for this run is Friday, August 17 before 8:59 pm. This 5K race is being sponsored through the Italian American Veterans Post # 1. Unlike many races, this race takes its participants off the road to run on the grass. There are various divisions and age categories available in which to enter. To view the classifications, please visit the website.

Trophies will be awarded to the top five female and male runners, as well as the winners from the various age groups, with medals handed out for second and third place finishers in each age group. There will also be ribbons awarded to the males and females who cross the finish line from second to twentieth in the 13 – 15 age group. An awards ceremony will be held after the finish of the race at the college gymnasium.

This event will also feature a 1 Mile Fun Run where runners and joggers will have the opportunity to start ahead at 5:30 pm in the tennis court area, located at the southwest corner of the park.

Flyer printing, through local printing companies, may have been used to promote the fun run and 5K run to the public. The cost to register for this event is $20 per person. For more information, please visit the Peace Racing website or the Santarelli Memorial 5K Cross Country Race website.
