Walk, Run & Roll 2014 is just around the corner!

5K Race / Fun Walk
October 11, 2014
(7:45 AM race day packet pickup)

Located at McNamara Park

Just north of Westerville at the corner of State Rte. 3 and Big Walnut Road, behind (north of) the Genoa Police, Fire, and Service Complex. The entrance is accessed off of Big Walnut Road.

Last year this event raised over $15,000 for local families and individuals who are affected by Spina Bifida. We hope this year's event will be even bigger and better!

The 5K is held on the beautiful Genoa trail. The trail is flat, shaded and perfect for a walk, run, or roll. This event is an amazing way to show your support for those affected by SB in the Central Ohio area.

For more information, contact Chrissy Zepfel at

  • Individual - $25.00 through October 6th ($30 Oct. 7th - race day)
  • Family/Team - $15 per person through October 6th ($20 per person: October 7th - race day)
