About the 5K for FA Cross Country Race

The course is a beautifully maintained cross country trail through open and wooded areas of Parma Town Park. It's moderately challenging with a few hills. This is NOT a road race. Whether you're walking or running, you'll enjoy the picturesque surroundings and you'll want to come back.

The walk/untimed run course is shorter, about 2 miles total. While our course is not what we'd call stroller friendly, some have braved it with all-terrain strollers. There are a number of hills on the trail and a good portion of it is a grassy field.

USATF Sanctioned Event.

About Fanconi Anemia

Fanconi anemia is an inherited disease that can lead to bone marrow failure and cancer. Though considered primarily a blood disease, FA may affect all systems of the body. It is a complex and chronic disorder that is psychologically demanding. FA is also a cancer-prone disease, affecting patients decades earlier than the general population.

Not Just a 5K

We want people to come and have a great time! Of course there will be water and lots of snacks for the participants. But we also have music, face painting, kid and adult Zumba warm ups,  a food cart on site for food purchase before and after race. And lots of prizes!

Participants are humbly *requested* (not required) to become fundraisers and raise $100 for the Fanconi Anemia Research Fund. Sign up is easy and with social media, the money raises itself.

Prizes will be awarded for the top fund raisers and best top times. We will also have a bib number raffle so everyone has a chance to win something, and we'll be selling 50/50 (split-the-pot) raffle tickets the day of the race.
