About This Activity


What:  A 5k run & walk race to raise money for the Upper Arlington athletic teams, cheerleaders, and band, at Upper Arlington High School, Hastings Middle School, and Jones Middle School. 

When: Saturday, July 16, 2016 8:00 am   

Where: Start at Upper Arlington High School (Main entrance – 1650 Ridgeview Road)

Why: To help reduce the raising costs for these Upper Arlington programs including participation fees, travel costs, uniforms, etc. 

How: $10 from every race entry fee goes directly to the specific program (or booster program, as determined by coach, or director), at a designated school, which is selected by the race participant.  In this manner each school program can have a hand in their fund raising efforts by encouraging race participants to sign up and select their particular program.  Please note this is both a run, and a walk, to be more inclusive. 

Registration cost: 

$35 through Thursday, July 14 - on line

$40 on Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16th - at race site at High School
