NEW FOR 2022
FRIDAY EVENING RACE!
START/FINISHThe race will start and finish in front of the Youngstown Volunteer Fire Hall in the Village of Youngstown and features a scenic course through the Village of Youngstown and beautiful Fort Niagara State Park (VIEW MAP). The 5K Run/Walk is set to start at 6:30pm start and event organizers are planning a 1/2 Mile Kids Fun Run through Veteran's Park that will take place at 6pm.
Please join us on Friday May 6, 2022 for the 28th Annual Nancy Price Memorial 5K Run. Price was the recreation director who actually put the recreation program on the map. She had Veteran's Park in Youngstown built up to what it is today from just a field. She did this by grit and determination. She was a fixture at the park and became friend/parent to all the children who came by the park.
Price passed away from cancer far too soon. Today, this race seeks to carry on her hopes and dreams for the youth of the community. Proceeds from the event go toward the Annual Nancy & Vicki Price Memorial Scholarships, which are given out to graduates from the area who possess the values she held and who are active in the community.
