Lake Erie Islands Browns Backers Draft Day 5K & Kids FUN Run (formerly April 25th)!
***Reschedule Date Announced***
The 6th Annual Draft Day 5k was originally to take place on April 25 but due to Covid, has been moved to October 11, 2020 on the historic island of Put-in-Bay, Ohio, sponsored by the Lake Erie Islands Browns Backers.
At the original date/time, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, they postponed the race until another time this season was available and October 11 was chosen. Hopefully the “Stay at Home” orders will have been lifted, and they finalize the date and ask for sponsorship. Last year the LEIBB donated over $6K in donations and are looking forward to doing that or more again this November at their annual meeting.
Whether you like to run or walk, make plans to enter one of the races and then celebrate the NFL draft with us!
Every participant will receive an Official Draft Day 5k Jersey, Draft Day 5k reusable tote bag, free lunch, drink discounts, tickets into a raffle for Cleveland Browns autographed footballs, framed and signed pictures and more! This event will benefit the Lake Erie Islands Browns Backers charities.
NEW THIS YEAR !
WE ARE OFFERING AN OPTION TO DO A VIRTUAL 5K RACE TO BENEFIT THE LEIBB!
FOR REGISTERING YOU WILL RECEIVE A RACE DAY SHIRT, CUSTOM BAG AND CUSTOM BIB!
