About This Activity

IMPORTANT NOTE: AS OF 9:00 PM on 5/17/16: We have ZERO race t-shirts left in stock. Please be aware that if you sign up after this time, you will NOT receive a race tshirt, as we are out of stock. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we encourage you to still sign up in order to experience the excitement of the nighttime glow run, to gorge on free food and discount drinks at our pub crawl, and to support Torchbearers!

As of 5/18/16 at 4:00 PM, online pre-registration has closed. If you would still like to sign up, you can do so in person on the day of the race (Saturday May 21, 2016) from 7-9PM at the site of the race (1735 Merriman Road, Akron, OH). As noted above, we are unfortunately OUT of t-shirts. Therefore, you will not receive a race t-shirt if you choose to register the day of the race.

It's the milestone 10th year of the AkRun & Crawl! To celebrate, this year we're doing things AFTER DARK with a Flashlight Glow Run along the Towpath Trail followed by an epic bar crawl in the Merriman Valley!

Our 5K run follows the scenic Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail through the Merriman Valley before joining your friends for a pub crawl to celebrate your finish in style. This is a GLOW run, so every runner will receive glow-in-the-dark accessories, and we encourage all participants to bring a flashlight to run with.

Race registration begins at 7 PM, with a 9 PM race start  in front of BCG & Co., located at 1735 Merriman Road in Akron. Join us at 9:30 p.m. as we kick off the Pub Crawl at Johnny J's, located in the Liberty Commons Shopping Plaza at 1282 Weathervane Lane, Akron, OH 44313. Race results will also be announced at this location. Other bars on the pub crawl include The Lazy Gator, Shots, Woody's, and The Corner Bar
