Get Fired Up for Tri-Cís Autumn Blaze 5K

           

PARMA: Feel the burn at the Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-Cģ) Autumn Blaze 5K while running past a blazing fire simulator on a course highlighting the KeyBank Public Safety Training Center at Western Campus.

 

Proceeds from the one-of-a-kind race benefit Greater Cleveland Community Shares, the United Negro College Fund, and United Way of Greater Cleveland. Tri-C launched the event in 2015 as part of its annual giving campaign to benefit the community.

 

Last yearís race raised $10,000 for the nonprofit agencies.

 

Tri-Cís fifth annual Autumn Blaze 5K and one-mile fun walk begins at 9 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 13, at Western Campus in Parma. The fast and flat course winds through a fire station and next to a flaming fire simulator on the campus grounds at 11000 Pleasant Valley Road.

 

The route also curls through Simulation Village, a soon-to-open mock town that will allow for training drills that closely reflect real-life settings faced by police, firefighters and rescue workers.

 

Online registration is available at www.tri-c.edu/autumnblaze5k through 9 a.m. Friday, Oct. 11. Preregistration is $20 for community members or $15 for Tri-C students. All preregistered runners and walkers will receive a knit winter beanie hat featuring Tri-Cís new mascot, Stomp the Triceratops.

 

On-site registration will also be available beginning at 8 a.m. on the day of the event at a cost of $25 for community members or $20 for Tri-C students. Hats for day-of registrants will be available as quantities allow.

 

Awards in the 5K will be given to the top three overall male and female runners and the top three finishers in the following age groups: 11 and younger; 12-14; 15-19; 20-24; 25-29; 30-34; 35-39; 40-44; 45-49; 50-54; 55-59; 60-64; and 65 and older.

 

Post-race refreshments will be available at the finish line, which nearly 300 runners and walkers crossed at last yearís race. The race will be timed by Hermes Road Racing.
