About This Activity


BUST A CRUST! Pie-K 5K Run/Walk

Our first annual Bust a Crust! Pie-K 5K supports Meals on Wheels' mission to provide home delivered meals, senior services and pet support to 10,000+ seniors so they can live safely and comfortably at home. Our Pie-K 5K kicks off our signature fundraising event Bust a Crust! 2021 in which we sell Thanksgiving pies to raise money to support our important work for seniors. See www.bustacrust.org for details!  


Our generous Bust a Crust! sponsors will be acknowledged throughout the race.  Interested in sponsoring?  See www.bustacrust.org for more details or contact Nancy Schreiner at nschreiner@muchmorethanameal.org 


This Pie-K 5K is a timed race for runners and walkers. It's family friendly and open to all! (Sorry, but no dogs are permitted.) The beautiful Spring Grove race route is paved and accessible for all ages, strollers and wagons.

All participants receive a race T-shirt and medal.  Trophies will be awarded to the overall top three male and female runners and the overall male and female walkers.  Prizes will be awarded to the first place male and female finishers determined by chip time in each age group: 6-12, 12-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, and 80+.

Free parking is provided at Spring Grove Cemetery & Arboretum adjacent to race start/finish.

This race was previously known as the Cincinnati Area Senior Services Run for the Generations 5K.


Please join us for festivities at the conclusion of the race, including an awards ceremony, yummy pie (of course!), food, beverages and music by DJ Brandon Scott Perry of Sound For Days.


Click the DONATE button to make an additional gift or to honor a senior with a donation in their name! Senior honorees will be recognized in signage along the race route.  Participants can also write family or senior’s names they want to honor on their race bib. The race provides an opportunity for people to remember seniors they love in a way that brings together community and promotes health and well-being.
