The Meadville 0.5K
October 7 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm$12 – $25
Come join the Meadville Business Alliance on October 7th for our third Meadville 0.5K! This tongue-in-cheek race is for the less-than-fit runner to raise money for the business alliance’s beautification and community efforts. For Meadville’s 0.5K, runners make their way from the Downtown Mall main entrance–up Chestnut Street—to Diamond Park! Along the way, runners must partake in three mandatory stops: a savory stop, a drink stop, and a sweet stop. The runners will also be “distracted” by additional activity stops created by local MIBA members (past activities include cornhole, a disco dance off, manicure station, and photo booths). Bystanders can cheer on their loved ones or participate in offerings & deals given by the Chestnut Street (and surrounding area) businesses.
Not only will people be dashing towards the finish line to claim their shiny complementary participation medal, food trucks will be placed around the Diamond, photo booths, music, and other fun activities. The costumes worn by race participants is also a “can’t-miss”—the creativity is always impressive. Shiny trophies are given to the best dressed racers, too!
