WB 5K is now virtual.
We will be doing things a little differently in light of the current world events. We will be holding the race virtually! You can complete any time after registration up to our actual race date of October 11th. If you are comfortable we would like to post pictures of your virtual race on our Facebook page so be sure to join that and add your pictures!
We are dropping the price to $20 if you pick up or forgo the swag, and $25 if you would like the swag mailed to you.
Pick up of the swag will be at the Willoughby Field House, date to be announced.
Mailing of swag will be a week before the event (Registration deadline OCT. 1st 2020).
The swag will be the same as last year the drawstring, lightweight, backpack.
The medal will be the same fidget spinner.
New for this year: an Osborne Park inspired handmade charm for your key chain. (Random designs: no two is a like).
WE had a successful season with Willoughby Baseball this 2020 season. Unfortunately, our IAP team was unable to participate due to health concerns. They still have the funds we raised for them last year so this year we will focus on the betterment of the entire league.
This year all the funds will still go to the Willoughby Baseball league; however, for concession stand equipment. They have 3 concession stands at their 3 baseball sites. All 3 have aging equipment that are starting to fail. I know they are down to one functioning popcorn machine (I need my popcorn at the baseball field). Please consider signing up or simply donate to help our beloved Willoughby Baseball League.

What is WB 5K
The WB 5K (Willoughby Baseball 5K):
Is a FAST, FLAT, and FUN 1 mile loop.
The timed 5K will complete three loops whereas the fun 1 mile will be one untimed loop.
Every participant will receive a unique medal and that feel good feeling of helping special needs kids play baseball for Willoughby!
All proceeds will go to the Willoughby Baseball IAP program.
Make a Difference by Entering to Run
Willoughby Baseball IAP (individual assistance program) is an awesome program where special needs kids, despite their disability, get to play baseball on a real field against another IAP team and occasionally a travel team. They play with assistance from parents, friends, and coaches. These awesome special needs kids play baseball and put their hearts and souls out on the field. They build lifelong friendships through the game of baseball. My goal is to make sure these kids can play for free as their families endure enough costs through out the year. This small token will make sure these awesome kids can keep playing. Thank you in advance for your support and while it means a lot to me it will mean the world to all of these families who love watching their kids on the field!
