The Kohl Family YMCA is hosting the Jack-O-Lantern Jog 5K walk/run through historic Glendale Cemetery Friday, Oct. 28. The family-friendly race, which goes through the heart of this historic landmark, begins at 5:30 p.m. at Lock 3 in downtown Akron (200 S. Main St.), ending at the same spot when the last goblin crosses the finish line.
Then, all participants will enjoy a costume contest (with prizes), trick-or-treat stops and other children’s activities. All proceeds benefit the annual campaign of the Akron Area YMCA.
Registration for the 2016 Jack-O-Lantern Jog is $25 and includes a T-shirt for those registering by Oct. 10.
