7th Annual 5k Walk/Run for Literacy
Saturday, October 5th, 2019
2019 marks the Brunner Literacy Center’s 7th annual 5k to promote adult literacy education in Dayton!
Join us at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 5th to walk, jog, or run our certified 5k course through beautiful Englewood MetroPark’s West Park to celebrate the joys of literacy, health, and community. Our course begins and ends at the Lawwill Shelter.
Plan to arrive 30-45 minutes early to check in at the registration table, get something to eat or drink, join in some pre-race exercise, listen to music, and visit with friends.
The three fastest men and women in each age bracket will be awarded medals at our closing ceremonies. Age brackets are divided into these groups:
- 19 years old and under
- 20-35 years old
- 36-50 years old
- 51-65 years old
- 66 years old and over
At the end of the race, we like to give away some goodies. Raffle prizes include cash awards of $500, $300, and $200. On top of that, some of our friends and sponsors donate other goodies to be given away. Past years’ prizes have included restaurant gift cards, gas station gift cards, fitness classes, fresh produce from A. Brown & Sons Nursery, and more!
Each 5k participant gets one free raffle ticket with registration. Additional tickets can be purchased at $5 for one (1) ticket and $25 for six (6) tickets. Tickets can be purchased in person at the BLC ahead of time or at the park on the day of the 5k. You do not need to be present to win the cash prizes. All proceeds benefit the BLC.

Originally called “kick baseball,” the game of kickball has been around for nearly 100 years. The game was invented by Nicholas C. Seuss, then Supervisor of Cincinnati Park Playgrounds in 1917. Physical education instructors incorporated kickball into public school classes during the early 1920s, and the game has remained a staple of neighborhood life for decades.
