parkrun Mansfield Weekly 5K
North Lake Park
Mansfield OH parkrun is a FREE weekly 5km event for runners of all standards, which takes place every Saturday at 9:00 am (October through April) and 8:00 am (May through September) in North Lake Park, 270 Rae Ave, Mansfield, OH 44903. It is not a race against other runners, but a 5k timed run and it can really be whatever you want it to be, whether that's for fun or as part of a training plan. Taking part is easy – just register before your first ever parkrun. The great thing is that you only ever need to do this once! When you register, you will receive a unique bar-code that is used to track your participation and your times at all runs. Don't forget to bring it with you to each event! So whether you are a complete novice looking to get yourself started on your own "running journey" or a seasoned athlete wanting to use this as a part of your training schedule, you’re welcome to come along and join.
