Clover 5K

8:15 am - 11:00 am Franklin County Fairgrounds

Join us to celebrate one of the pillars of 4-H, “Health, to better living,” at the Franklin County Fairgrounds on Saturday, April 6, 2019. The Clover 5K is an event for everyone, young or old(er), runner or couch potato – we want your participation!

We will be using a similar course as last year, with the start and finish on the horse track. The course is an out and back course all on the Franklin County Fairgrounds.

The Clover 5K is a run with a purpose. All funds help support the Walk & Serve, a Central Ohio community service event that benefits local nonprofits and the populations they serve.

Your entry fee includes:
one short sleeve soft t-shirt
a goodie bag
post-race snacks including a made to order omelet or scrambled eggs
a “woodal”
and the satisfaction that you made a difference by supporting the Walk & Serve and 15 non-profits!
T-shirts can only be guaranteed for those who register before March 24th. Very few shirts may be available on race day, but will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. (No shirts will be order after the event.) Same day registration will be available. Cost is $35 for adults and $30 for student in grades K – 12.

At 9:30 the 4-H Walk & Serve will begin and 4-H members will guide you through hands-on activities to create special items for local Central Ohio residents served by organizations like Touching Little Lives, MASH Veterans Food Pantry, and Buckeye Military Moms.

Race results will be available shortly after the race and posted on the website.

Every runner gets a hand-stamped “Woodal” – real wooden medals. We’ll have medals for the top male and female overall finisher, and special awards for the top male and female runner in each age category (13 and under, 14-15, 16-17, 18-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 and over). All awards will be handed out at 9:15 am.

Free parking is available at the Franklin County Fair Grounds..
