Enjoy a scenic, late summer morning run through Ridgewood Golf Course and the mostly flat adjacent residential neighborhoods at University Hospitals Parma Medical Center’s 5K and One Mile Walk for Wellness on Saturday, Aug. 20.

Runners, walkers and strollers are all welcome to participate in the second of three races in the UH Race Series. In this chip-timed race, awards will be presented in overall and age group categories. Register by Friday, Aug. 19 at 9 a.m. for a discounted registration fee of $20. Race-day registration is $25. Tech-style t-shirts will be guaranteed for the first 300 registrants.

University Hospitals’ Sports Medicine will be on hand to advise runners to keep them injury-free, and UH Parma Medical Center’s Food & Nutrition Services will provide a free smoothie bar along with the other food and refreshments. Raffle prizes will be available including gift certificates from Vertical Runner and Dick's Sporting Goods. The MedEvac helicopter will be landing before tours at the race, which starts at 9 a.m. at Medical Arts Center 4, 6115 Powers Blvd.
