The Viking Victory Run is a 5K race, presented by For Paws Blue Cross Animal Hospital, and 1 mile Kids Fun Run, presented by Paxos Plating, that benefits the North Canton Elementary and Middle School PTO and PTA organizations. Our goal is to promote fitness in our students and their families. All proceeds from our race will be split evenly amongst the PTO/PTA groups, to help fund programs such as field trips, enrichment classes, smart boards, and much more! In 2 years, we've raised over $38,000 for the PTO and PTA groups. In 2014, our goal is $25,000!
Our 2014 Fitness Days, presented by Impulse Peronal and Sports Training, will be held on the following dates:
- Sunday, April 13, 2:00 PM, Price Park
- Sunday, May 4, 2:00 PM, Price Park
Fitness Days are for the whole family - come to the park, walk the track, run the obstacle course, and have fun! All kids attending a Fitness Day get a raffle ticket for the Kids Fun Run Raffle to be held on race day. Prizes include a Skymax party, 3 family memberships to Dogwood Pool, an iPod Touch, and much more.
This year's race will be held on Sunday, May 18, 2014 at North Canton Memorial Stadium. The races will start on 7th Street, and finish on the track at North Canton Memorial Stadium. We hope to pack the stands with a cheering crowd, to urge our runners to the finish line!
The Kids Fun Run will feature a raffle for the runners. Kids earn raffle tickets for entering the race, and additional tickets can be purchased at our Fitness Days or on Race Day! The Kids Fun Run kicks off at 2:00 PM.
The 5K Race will be a part of the Ohio Challenge Series, with trophies given out to top finishers in several age categories. The 5K winds through the neighborhoods around the school, and will have an awesome finish line on the track! Because we are using the track, there are NO strollers or pets allowed in either the race or the Fun Run. The 5K kicks off at 3:00 PM, with awards to follow at 4:00 PM.
All runners, in both the Kids Fun Run and 5K, will receive a t-shirt! Also, EVERY RUNNER GETS A MEDAL, thanks to our 2014 Medal Sponsors, Studio Fit One!
