The United Way of Tuscarawas County invites area runners and walkers to participate in its 13th annual Rock-N-Run on Saturday, Aug. 27. There will be a 5k and 10k run.

“This community event enables us to get the word out about the United Way and our partner agencies while raising funds in a fun and healthy way,” said Susan Reidenbach, United Way of Tuscarawas County community resources coordinator.

Race-day registration for the 5k and 10k will start at 5:45 p.m. for those not preregistered. The race will begin and end at the DoverPhila Federal Credit Union, 119 Fillmore Ave., Dover, with a 6:30 p.m. start time for the 10k and 7 p.m. for the 5k.

The road course is flat and goes along the city streets. Overall awards for each race will be gift certificates to the top-three male and female runners and local gift certificates to the top-three male and female finishers in each age group.

The post-race ceremony will feature awards, food and adult beverages. Online registration is available at www.runsignup.com, or forms can be downloaded at www.tuscunitedway.org/events and mailed to the United Way, P.O. Box 525, New Philadelphia, OH 44663.

The Rock-N-Run race is a great way to kick off the United Way of Tuscarawas County’s annual giving campaign,” said Jason Garner, CEO/president for DoverPhila Federal Credit Union. “This is just one of many ways the credit union gives back to the community.”
