Harrigan’s Charity 5K – March 14, 2020

**UPDATE: 2020 5K Cancelled**

In light of recent developments of the COVID-19 virus and following the instruction of Governor DeWine, we cancelled the Harrigan’s Charity 5K on March 14, 2020 at Harrigan’s Tavern in Kettering.  We apologize for any inconvenience that this may bring, but the health and safety of our participants and volunteers take top priority.

If you registered for the Harrigan’s Charity 5K before March 4, you can pick your shirt up tonight, Friday, March 13 at Up and Running between 5-7pm or on Sunday, March 15 at Up and Running between 1-4pm.

Your continued support of the Harrigan’s Charity 5K benefitting the Alzheimer’s Association, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, South Community, Inc. and United Rehabilitation Services is much appreciated.  We will begin planning next year’s event carrying on our legacy of helping our fellow neighbors in our community.

Any questions, please contact Angela at angela@youngsdairy.com

The Harrigan’s Charity 5k is on for March 14, 2020.  We feature chip-based professional timing by Speedy Feet.  Chip-based timing systems are state-of-the-art, and are vastly more accurate with virtually instant race results.  Harrigan’s will open at 9:00 am to accommodate the runners before & after the race; K&G’s Fun Days continue with the huge K&G annual sale & other activities awaiting runners & family adjacent to the run finish.

This fun 5K run/walk is part of the Young’s Ice Cream Charity Bike Tour that benefits four local charities!  The Alzheimer’s Association, United Rehabilitation Services, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and South Community are the charities.  They all provide support and volunteers for the Harrigan’s 5K and the bike tour.  Over the past 16 years, with help from runners, bikers, sponsors and volunteers, we have given $1,342,400 to our charities.  Thanks so much for your past support.  We are looking forward to another great 5K and bike tour this year.

Up and Running will award one lucky male runner and one lucky female runner each a pair of new running shoes.  Medals will be awarded for the top three finishers in each category.  Prizes and medals not picked up on race day will be available during the following week at Up and Running, Washington Square Plaza, Centerville (same location as early packet pick-up).

Again this year, technical running shirts for the first 150 runners to sign up!!!!  Gordon Food Service will provide bananas, water, and snacks.
