Akron Rubber Ducks 5k


Sunday, April 17, 10:30 a.m., Canal Park


Take me out to the 5k! Take me out to the crowd……

Run the streets of downtown Akron on game day and finish at the newly renovated Canal Park. Sign the kids up for the 1 mile fun run and include your whole family in this fast-paced afternoon of outdoor adventure. After the race, grab a complimentary beer or soda and view the awards ceremony before the start of the game. Awards will consist of Akron Rubber Ducks baseballs and game tickets.  Award winners will be recognized on the field during pregame. You’ll be on the edge of your seat as the Indians’ top prospects take the field against the Bowie Baysox beginning at 2:05. Game ticket and 1 beer or soda is included with race registration. If that isn’t exciting enough, shake out your legs by running the bases after the Ducks win the game!
