The 5K/1-Mile Run/Walk will be held on Saturday, September 25, 2021 at The Bedford Reservation, Egbert Picnic Area at 9:00 am.
This “health meets education” event will feature runners and walkers of all ages from around Northeast Ohio who care about, and believe in, helping to educate our promising college-bound youth beyond high school. Over the years, the Zeta Omega Scholarship Fund has donated thousands of dollars to exemplary students of need throughout Northeast Ohio and this year will be no different. The Zeta Omega Run/Walk itself has helped the Zeta Omega Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. and the Fund to provide over $15,000 in scholarships over the past 5 years.
The Sixth Annual Zeta Omega Run/Walk for Scholarship will feature over 150 participants that will either face the challenge of walking the established 1-mile course, or of running the rigorous 5K route along the Buckeye Trail at Egbert Park.
For participation walkers and runners will enjoy the sounds of professional DJ Low Key before and after the race, receive a Zeta Omega Run/Walk t-shirt, post race refreshments and snacks, and a sponsor driven swag bag filled with goodies and keepsakes.
Cash awards will be provided to the top three overall male and female runners of the 5K as well as to the top finisher awards in respective age groups.
