About This Activity

Welcome to the 2nd Annual "Fairless Canal Classic 5K Run/Walk"!  This race, formerly known as the "Canalway Classic 5K", takes place on the scenic Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath, beginning close to the John Glenn trail-head and ending on High Street in Navarre.  The course is shady and flat.  It's one of the fastest certified 5k courses in NE Ohio and a favorite of many runners, near and far.  It is a one way race, so participants will register at the Navarre Civic Center then get bused to the starting point of the race and finish the race on High St. near the Navarre Civic Center where the presentations will be held. (*At this time, there are no exclusive walking awards.)
