About This Activity

Athens CASA/GAL Program Superhero 5k Fun Run, Volume III

“All kids need a hero, but CASA’s kids need a SUPERHERO!”

What is a Superhero 5k?

Well, it’s a 5k for Superheroes, of course! On June 25, 2016 at 7:00am (8am start), come dressed as your favorite superhero and enjoy 3.2ish miles of super, wacky fun. In a Superhero 5k, there are no winners, no losers and no in-betweeners… just a bunch of Superheroes showing off their super powers. After you cross the finish line join in on the fun at our “Battle of the Superheroes,” an epic, good old-fashioned water fight.

Tell me about the course…

The West State Street Park and Bike Path

398 West State Street

Athens, Ohio 45701

The 3.2ish mile down and back course is set on a beautifully maintained, flat bike path. Portions of the course are well shaded by trees and run parallel with the Hocking River and a portion of the course is in full sun.

Who can enter the Superhero 5k?

Only superheroes with real or imaginary super powers allowed! Superheroes of all ages, shapes, sizes and levels are challenged to showcase their best super power in the Superhero 5k! Strollers, wheelchairs and leashed, polite SuperPets are welcome.

What’s in it for me?

Other than showing the world your super duper SUPER POWERS, you get a free t-shirt (with advance registration only) and a finisher award. Oh, yeah… and you get to help out some Super Kids! All proceeds from the Superhero 5k benefit the Athens CASA/GAL Program and local kids that have experienced abuse or neglect.

Ok! I’m in. What next?

Go to to register. Tee shirts are available as sizes and supplies last. Registration is $30 for grownups, $15 for youth (as long as they are, in fact, a Superhero and have a registered adult with them). Youth athletic teams should contact the CASA office to learn about the youth group registration discount.

Can't make it to Athens on June 25, sign up as a VIRTUAL SUPERHERO! Complete online registration and we'll mail your shirt and CASA swag right to your door!

Be sure to check us out on Facebook and share with your friends… the world needs a few more Superheroes!
