Blue Ribbon 10K and 2 mile weaves throughout downtown youngstown, ysu, wick park, crandall park, 5th avenue

Last month's Panerathon brought 3,000 participants running/walking in downtown youngstown, and the course snaked around Mill Creek Park.

This Sunday's "Blue Ribbon 10K race - 2mile walk for Prostate Cancer Awareness" weaves through some of the best urban areas of Youngstown, featuring the city's best architectural and planning achievements.

The course starts in Historic Wick Park, up through Fifth Avenue and its mansions to Stambaugh Golf Course, back down and throughout Crandall Park, over to Downtown along Federal Street, and through the YSU campus to get back to Wick Park.

The web site for the race/fun walk is here.

This was a well attended and well organized event for its first year. The course layout was fantastic...taking you through Wick Park & Crandall Parks, 5th Ave and downtown. Thanks to the organizers for choosing Youngstown. Look forward to doing it again next year.
