YARS Community Council Hosts 5K on the Runway July 6

VIENNA TOWNSHIP, Ohio – The Youngstown Air Reserve Base Community Council will host its second annual 5K on the Runway July 6 at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport.

Proceeds from the race will support the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber’s Eastern Ohio Military Affairs Commission, which advocates for Youngstown Air Reserve Station here and Camp Garfield in Ravenna. 

Registration, available here, is $35 per runner and includes a T-shirt, medal, pizza and water. Day-of registration will be available, but only those registering online before June 22 will receive a shirt and medal.

Runners will have two hours to complete the 5K. No strollers will be allowed. On July 6, registration begins at 7 a.m., opening ceremonies at 7:45 and the race promptly at 8.

The Youngstown Air Reserve Base Community Council was founded 35 years ago to provide a forum for addressing issues facing the community and service members associated with the base. It also works to improve the understanding of the air station’s role and mission.

For more information on the 5K, contact Marcy Angelo at 330 509 2420.
