About This Activity

The Cooper Tire Centennial 5-Miler inaugural race was held in July 2014 to commemorate the company's 100th anniversary in the tire business. Please join us for the fourth annual Cooper Tire Centennial 5-Miler / 5K Race on Saturday, June 3 beginning at 7:45 a.m. at the Cooper Tire Track and Field Complex at Findlay High School. 

New This Year:  We have added a 5K option for those choosing to run or walk a shorter distance. 

Cooper invites walkers and runners of all ages and skill levels to participate. At Cooper, we are proud of where we've been and confident of where we are going... come along with us!

Proceeds from this race will support the Cooper Tire & Rubber Company Centennial Scholarship Fund, a component of the Findlay-Hancock County Community Foundation. The scholarship provides financial support for the children of U.S. Cooper employees who are high school seniors pursuing further education at a technical college, university, or other institution. The focus is on students who intend to pursue a career related to manufacturing. To date, Cooper has awarded 8 scholarships worth $1,000 each!
