Lace up your sneakers and don your best red, white, and blue! Come run or walk with Chillicothe Civic Theatre through historic downtown Chillicothe, Ohio's first capital, and scenic Yoctangee Park on this Patriotic holiday weekend, and help support our home theatre project. Run or walk our 5K or enjoy the beautiful summer morning with the Sparkler Sprint 1-mile fun run/walk within the park. We’ll kick off the race with the singing of our National Anthem by one of our fabulously talented members, and the presentation of the colors, and will include spectacular sights such as volunteers assisting wheelchair-bound citizens in completing the Sparkler Sprint and and patriotic spectators celebrating our Nation’s independence.

A little history...in December 2013, Chillicothe Civic Theatre purchased a building in downtown Chillicothe to be used as rehearsal and storage space and eventually a fully-operational 100-seat theatre. Since, we have undertaken the task of raising funds to transform our empty shell into a beautiful live theatre destination. We have solicited donations and held special events, including last year's inaugural Run, Walk & Boom and Gong-A-Rama, to name a few. We have obtained an easement from the City of Chillicothe to expand our lobby area, worked with our architect on drawings, have obtained the necessary approvals and permits, and are in the process of construction!! We are grateful to our sponsors and donors and to the community members who will participate or otherwise support this event.
