The Second Annual
Downtown Willoughby 5k
September 14, 2014
The First Annual Downtown Willoughby 5k was a success! Watch for 2014 to open after the New Year.
So, That Was Fun!The Downtown Willoughby 5k on September 15th, 2013 was a tremendous success! We raced, we celebrated, and we raised over $29,500 for Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Not a bad day at all.
Thank you to our 80+ volunteers who made the race run smoothly. Your help is truly appreciated and you all did an amazing job!
Be sure to visit our 28 sponsors on the right side of this site. They were all so incredibly supportive and eager to be part of a first year event.
The City of Willoughby and our residents were amazing. Residents lined the streets to cheer on our runners and keep smiles on everyone's faces. The support from Willoughby residents brought extra life to the Downtown Willoughby 5k and reinforced why we love to live here.
We're already starting to plan the Second Annual Downtown Willoughby 5k for September 2014 and hope you'll join us!
