Welcome to the official event page for the Co-Run-a 5K Cross Country Race.  In partnership with PEACE Racing, this race brings back "racing" to Northeast Ohio while complying with the current guidelines to provide as-safe-as-possible race experience.

This is NOT a virtual race!  It is a time-trial style race in which participants will send off in groups/waves of 6-8 runners 15 minutes apart while all running the same race course. In efforts to provide as much safety as possible, CHAMP Racing and PEACE Racing will implement strict event guidelines that will help provide social distancing but yet giving runners a more "competitive" atmosphere than a "virtual" race.  The race venue was the host site and race course for the 2019 NCAA Ohio Athletic Conference Division III Championship!
