[ Race Info ]
Our race has continued to evolve and change over the years, and this year we are excited to present a new race theme and location! We are now in our 12th year of what started as the Strawberry Run 5k. This year we will offer a two race combo at a discounted price. Run one or the other or both! Our summer theme will be chocolate milk and our winter theme will be hot chocolate. Participants will have their choice to run the classic 5k race or run the .5k (500 m) participation run. We are moving our race location to Polk, and will be partnering with the Polk-Jackson-Perry Fire Department and Polk Lions Club to put on a great race!
The races will be held in Polk Ohio. Parking, Race Registration and Packet pick-up will be at:
Polk-Jackson-Perry Fire Station
209 East Congress Street
Polk, Ohio 44805
After the races we will present our overall and age group winners. Also, don’t forget that the Polk Lions Club and Mapleton Cross Country team will have chocolate milk and hot chocolate themed sweets and treats for participants. This will also be available for spectators to purchase and partake in!
