Sand Run Metro Park, June 29th 2019

Get ready to climb!

Sand Run Metro Park in Akron, Ohio is home to Mingo Madness 15k, the newest event in the Running Forward Giving Back family. Love hills? Of course you do, you're a trail runner! With over 1000 feet of climb, this race won't disappoint. The course includes the primitive, single track Dogwood and Mingo Loops, as well as an out-and-back stretch on the jogging trail where you can open up.

As good stewards of our beautiful park system, we of course practice leave no trace. Also in that spirit, Mingo Madness is a cupless like other races in the RFGB series. 

The race start and finish are at the North Hawkins Area. The race will start promptly at 7:00am. See You there!

Don't Wait!!!!!!!

Only 100 spots available!
