Register for United Way's 5k Run and 1 Mile Walk

United Way of Lake County is warming the hands and hearts of Lake County by hosting a Warm Hands, Warm Hearts 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk.

The race will take place at the beautiful Chagrin River Park in Willoughby on Sunday, October 21. Pre-registration cost for the 5K is $20 (including a shirt) and the 1 mile walk is $15 (including a shirt).

Each participant receives a two-week trial membership to Mentor Fitworks and a two-week trial membership to Mentor Heisley Racquet and Fitness Club as well as being entered into a raffle with some great prizes. Proceeds for the event go to United Way-funded programs and participants are also encouraged to bring a donation of gloves or mittens to help those without them for this upcoming winter.

  1. It has been almost one year since I did the warm hearts 5k. The day was beautiful, the people were friendly and energetic, the run was fun. What more would you want am I right? If you want to get the most out of your run, check your form. Hop on a livestrong treadmill and record yourself. Post it online and ask for advice from other runners.
