The Viking Victory Run is a 5K Run, 5K Competitive Walk, 1 Mile Kids Fun Run and 1 Lap Little Vikes Run that benefits the North Canton City Schools PTO Organizations serving preschool through grade 8. Our goal is to promote fitness in our students, their families and in the community by providing a family event that is fun for all ages. Proceeds from the race will be given to the PTO groups to help fund playground equipment, enrichment programs, provide educational assistance, building enhancements and much more! To date, we have raised almost $100,000 and hope to continue our success in support of our students.
The 5K races are part of the Ohio Challenge Series and are point scoring events. Awards will be given out to the overall top 3 finishers (male and female) and in several age catergories for the 5K Run and to the overall top 3 finishers (male and female) for the 5K Competitive Walk. Both races wind through the neighborhood streets surrounding the stadium and will have an awesome finish on the stadium track. Because we are using the track, there are NO STROLLERS OR PETS ALLOWED in any of the races.
The Kids Fun Run/Little Vikes Lap will feature a raffle for the runners. Kids earn raffle tickets for entering the race, and additional tickets can be purchased on Race Day! Every child gets a medal at the finish!
All runners will receive a t-shirt (if registered on or before April 13th) and a medal!
Please check out our sponsors! We couldn't put on this great event without them.
