This annual event, now in its 18th year, coincides with the annual Balloonfest hosted by Ashland, County. The Balloonfest 5k Run and Walk is the longest running 5k in Ashland County.

The Ashland Balloonfest 5k is put on by the Ashland Cross Country Parents Organization (ACCPO).

Roads will be blocked off and volunteers will be stationed at each roadblock to make sure runners are safe. There will also be members from the police and sheriff’s department on hand that day for extra security and safety measures. There will be a water station at the halfway point as well as a medical doctor on location.

Proceeds from the 5k benefit the children of Ashland Middle School and Ashland High School cross-country teams.  There will also be a FREE Fun Run so the whole family can enjoy. Prizes will be given to the top boy and top girl in the fun run!
