Willoughby Lions 5K Race
June 26, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 2:00 pm
In the heart of Wellness Weekend, Willoughby Eastlake Schools and The Bar Crossfit have teamed up and are hosting the 5th annual Willoughby Lions 5K Race. Wellness Weekend is a time to focus on our health and wellness and promote the idea of staying active. These organizations came together to incorporate all aspects of being active into this 5K. After the race, there will be a yoga for runners class, as well as a running form clinic. Sweetberry Market will also be providing fruits such as bananas, apples, and oranges to all of the finishers at the end. Water during the race will be handed out by the Willoughby cross-country team to help runners stay hydrated.
In addition to helping further advocate the idea of health and staying active, this race will be benefiting the community as well. The proceeds will be donated to the Lions club as well as the Success Academy. The importance of supporting our youth and helping improve their health and wellness is essential. The Success Academy is a unique and innovative way to ensure that students who have trouble learning in a traditional classroom setting have the same opportunities to prepare for college. Through hands on learning, the Success Academy focuses on these students and their future to help them prepare for a career.
Registration begins at 7:30 am with the race following at 9:00 am. For more information regarding registration and donations, please visit The Bar CrossFit’s website.
