For the 15th consecutive year, the Jeep Davis Memorial 5K is part of the prestigious Subway Challenge Series, a season-long series of races in which runners accumulate points and earn prizes. As an added incentive, the Jeep Davis 5K is an “Elite Division” Series Race which features thousands of dollars in prize money. Check www.ohiochallengeseries.com for all the details.

The Jeep Davis Memorial 5K will begin at the Military Honor Roll on Sixth Street Northwest and end in front of the Barberton Public Library, where there stands a bronze statue of the late Glenn “Jeep” Davis, a three-time Olympic gold medalist.
