The Viking Victory Run is a 5K Run, 5K Competitive Walk, 1 mile Fun Run and 1 lap Little Vikes Run (6 years and under) that benefits the North Canton City Schools PTO organizations serving preschool through grade 8. Our goal is to promote fitness in our students, their families and the community. Proceeds from the race will be given to the PTO groups to help fund playground equipment, enrichment programs, educational assistance, building enhancements and much more! To date, we have raised close to $100,000 and hope to continue our success in support of our students.
The 5K Run is part of the Ohio Challenge Series and is a point scoring event. Awards will be given to the top 3 overall finishers (male and female) and to the top male and female in each age category for the 5K Run and to the top 3 overall finishers (male and female) for the 5K Competitive Walk. Both races wind through the neighborhood surrounding the stadium and will have an awesome finish line on the stadium track. Because we are using the track, NO STROLLERS OR PETS ALLOWED in any of the races.
ONLINE and PAPER REGISTRATIONS WILL BEGIN ON FEBRUARY 1, 2017.
