Wick Park 5K Run/Walk

Saturday, April 14, 2018 - 10AM - Wick Park Pavilion

Please join us for the inaugural Wick Park 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, April 14th at the Wick Park Pavilion in Youngstown, Ohio!

The run/walk is a fundraiser for the Wick Park Improvement Project. Since 2008, nearly $850,000 has been raised for improvements such as landscaping, signage, gates, new sidewalks/parking area, playground, exercise equipment stations, a disc golf course and pavilion upgrades. This year's project will target improvements for the park's running trail.

The 3.1 mile run/walk will be held entirely within the park itself and will be professionally timed by Second Sole Racing.

Registration is $17 before April 7th and $20 after. Check-in and day-of registration will be at 8:30am. Race/Walk starts at 10am. Free street parking is available on the south end of the park (Park Avenue and side streets) and volunteers will be on hand for assistance.


All participants will receive a 2018 Youngstown Discount Card as well as coffee and food samples from Cultivate Cafe and Culturehouse Coffee Roasters, both neighborhood businesses. Top finishers will receive:

  • Cash prize plus medals for top three overall male and female finishers.
  • Medals for top three male and female runners in the following age brackets: 0-14, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+
