Last year Torchbearers took our annual 5K and bar crawl AFTER DARK with a Flashlight Glow Run along the Towpath Trail. This year we're turning up the volume with live DJ's throughout the course to keep your energy up and spirits high!
The run follows the scenic Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail through the Merriman Valley and ends with an epic pub crawl to celebrate your finish in style. Every runner will receive NEON and glow-in-the-dark accessories to wear while running and are encouraged to bring flashlights to illuminate the trail.
The first 300 registrants will also receive an official AkRun & Crawl t-shirt!
Not a runner? Join the fun and get your crawl-only tickets for access to food and drink specials at the 5 participating bars: Johnny J's, The Lazy Gator, Shots, Woody's, and The Corner Bar.
Race check-in begins at 7 PM, with a 9 PM race start at 1735 Merriman Road in Akron.
Then, join us at 9:30 p.m. as we kick off the Pub Crawl at Johnny J's, located in the Liberty Commons Plaza at 1282 Weathervane Lane, Akron, OH 44313. Race results and prizes will also be announced at this location.
Discounted pre-registration tickets are available until noon, May 10, so sign up now!
