Event description


Make America Fit Again is an organization created by Miss Northern Ohio (preliminary for Miss Ohio in the Miss America Scholarship Program), Stephanie Shoop.

We wish to instill a culture where our children realize the benefits of eating healthy and leading an active lifestyle

Join us for the first ever Make America Fit Again 5K Race to celebrate the benefits of living a healthy life. This race puts no pressure on beating other competitors, but helps to encourage and motivate our community members to get out and get active. Whether you walk, hop, skip or run through the course, you are welcome.

Join us for a day worth of fun outdoor activities that help enforce activity.

Race Day

The race day begins at 9:30 AM at Kendall Lakes which is apart of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. It is situated in a beautiful area that would inspire anyone to explore nature. Because the path is more narrow than your typical 5K race, we will be having different waves that will begin every 10 minutes (sign up for the wave you prefer; more waves will be added depending on participation).

What to expect?

The day will begin with the national anthem and a grand welcome for all members of the community. There will be music, games and entertainment near the lake before and after your race completion.

The race will be timed for those who wish to have it timed. If you choose to not have your race timed there will be instructions during packet pickup to opt out.

Those who choose to participate in the timed race can compete for prizes (TBD). The prizes will be given out for the fastest time in several different categories/age groups - Overall Male, Overall Female, Girls 5-12, Boys 5-12, Girls 13-19, Boys 13-19, Women 20-35, Men 20-35, Women 35+, Men 35+.

What does participation include?

Upon registration you will have entry into the 5k race along with your packet. Each packet will include a t-shirt (design TBD), other great offers from the community, your race bib and pins.

Each finisher will receive a finisher's medal as well as post-race snacks.

Each participant will also receive access to the race photo album with FREE, professional photos from the race.
