Collin Cares Cure Cancer
Collin Cares Cure Cancer is an organization founded by a courageous young man and his family. Collin's mission to help others has attracted an army of volunteers. Our goal is to raise awareness of cancer and the effects on families and help those in need. Please join us to fight cancer and defy the hand you're dealt! Our focus is to help children and young adults battling cancer. We have donated over $100,000 so far thanks to people like you!
The start/finish line is in the parking lot of Towner's Woods in Kent, Ohio. The course runs along hiking trails throughout the Towner's Woods, which is part of Portage Parks District in Franklin Township. The park contains a historic Hopewell Indian Mound Site and the Historic Brady Interlocking Railroad Town and prohibits bikes, motor vehicles, and horses on the trails. The trails are natural surface and contain mature wooded areas, wetlands, natural grass, and scenic views along the way. The park is next to Lake Pippin, a pristine glacial kettle hole, owned by the city of Akron and its natural resources division. The property consists of approximately 234 rolling acres of diverse public land in Franklin and Ravenna Township and is a renowned cross-country skiing and hiking destination in the local community.
There will be water and snacks at the start/finish line, along with park restrooms. There is one additional aide station that you pass at the 1.4 and 2.2 mile points which will also have water.
Please be advised that there are roots, rocks, and possibly mud on the trail. There are places where it is single track, also. The trails are beautiful, but this is not a flat and fast race! There is approximately 200' of gain and has rolling hills.
See that sweet tie dye shirt with the race logo? That is the race shirt! We are encouraging participants to wear race day. Also, thanks to our bomb-ass sponsors, you will get coupons for a free coffee from Bent Tree AND a free beer from the newest spot in town, North Water Brewing Company! Guy's Pizza is providing pizza at the end of the race and Taco Tonto's is providing all day happy hour prices on drinks and tacos. There is additional swag and raffle for anyone opting to park downtown and ride their bike along the beautiful Portage Bike and Hike to the start of the race.
