running. parkrun event

Friends of Stark Parks is proud to bring parkrun USA to Sippo Lake Park in 2019! parkrun is a completely free, weekly, timed 5k staged at parks around the world, led by volunteers. Stark Parks will host the first one in Stark County on Saturday, April 20 and each Saturday following throughout 2019. These 5k races are open to everyone – including walkers. Participants only need to register once to be signed up for any and all races they would like to attend at Sippo Lake, but they do need to bring their printed barcode to each event. A quick briefing will start each week at 7:50 a.m. with the run beginning at 8 a.m. Participants are welcome to stick around for coffee and community afterward. With Stark Parks’ addition of parkrun at Sippo Lake, this is now the second parkrun location in Ohio and the thirtieth location in the United States.

The run will start each week at the Exploration Gateway, located at the north entrance of Sippo Lake Park. Parking is available in the lower lot and the 5k will begin near the shelter.
