About This Activity

Not many races can claim a 35 year history like Ohio Valley Hospital and Kennedy Township's community race. Each year, we see competitive runners and families alike complete our hilly 5K course.

It's a community tradition that has changed from a 10K and bike race to a 5K; drawing a few hundred participants every year. We hope you'll become part of our history by signing up for 2016.

The race is open to runners and walkers (dogs on a leash and strollers are welcome to try out the course, as well).

Event details and schedule

The OVH and Kennedy Township race kicks off from the Hospital's main entrance at 8am on Saturday, May 14th, 2016. Our DJ plays you off onto the hilly course, and you're welcomed back with an awards ceremony and breakfast spread!

Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place male and female, regardless of age, who cross the finish line.

Packet-Pick Up will be available on Thursday, May 12th and Friday, May 13th from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at Elite Runners and Walkers located at 1108 Park Manor Blvd in Robinson Town Center, next to Delucas Diner and Guitar Center. *Please note: some GPS devices have this address as the Masquerade Costume shop across the street which is incorrect.*

You may also pick up your race packet at the registration table in front of the Hospital's main entrance on race day. Race day registration and packet pick up will be available from 6:30am-7:45am on the day of the race.

Bag check is available; please, no large bags, coolers, or back packs.

Free Parking is available on the day of the event in the OVH Medical Office Building parking lots and across the street at The Willows Senior Living Community.

The route roads will close around 7:30am and remain closed until about 9:00am-9:30am, depending on the time the last participants cross the finish line. These roads include parts of the McKees Rocks Road, Heckel Road, Fairhaven Road, and Pine Hollow Road.

Race shirts are guaranteed to the first 200 registered participants. You must sign a waiver to race.
