Jail Break 5k Run & 1 Mile Walk

June 10, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

- $30
Jail Break 5k

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Jail Break 5K Run & 1 Mile Family Walk. The race will begin at the Licking County Historic Jail, move you throughout the downtown landscape, and then finish at the Licking County Historic Jail.

All those who participate will receive a free tour of the jail following the race. The cost per runner for the 5k is $25 until 3/31, and $30 thereafter (T-Shirts are included with both price levels). The cost per participant for the 1 Mile walk is $10, however t-shirts must be purchased separately. It is an exciting time for downtown as it continues to be rejuvenated through private and public funding. Please join us to be a part of that movement!

The Licking County Governmental Preservation Society is hosting this event to raise awareness and money for continued restoration of the Licking County Historic Jail. Since being opened in 1889, this jail has been an architectural staple for Licking County. Through the Licking County Governmental Preservation Society, it is our hopes and desire to bring the Historic Jail new life through historically accurate renovations. Any events that we conduct, such as the 5k, directly benefit this effort so that the Historic Jail can continue to be the gem that this County and its constituents deserve.
