Welcome May, It's Time to Plan Your Summer Racing!

Thanks to all who visited Angie & Deb & Jeanette at the racing booth at the Glass City Marathon this year! The ladies were busy all day with supporters and newcomers of Tigertown! The GCM was our kickoff for providing one of the most exciting, colorful, unpredictable and fun 5K events in a 3 state area. This year is no exception to the rule as more extras will be on the course and our always exciting door prize giveaways are piling up in the "vault" for you! There are not many 5K races that go to the expense to provide you with a "tech" shirt, let alone offer a "ladies cut" when available to us! For those with the "need for speed" we offer "course record prize money" that's a great incentive to do Tigertown... Then, after you finish your 1st or one of many Tigertown races our "food specialists" provide a runner's "dream buffet" to participates before the awards presentations. It's time to mark your racing calendar and sign up for the 2016 Tigertown 5000 isn't it?

Our Sponsors "Rock" & Our Music "Rolls" !

This is the final few days to get "early" registration to an already "low entry fee" to one of the most unusual, fun filled, and "never know whats going to happen" 5K event in northwest Ohio! We have received word that Meijer's Stores who is one of our food vendors had "doubled" their givings to offset expenses for Tigertown. We are "shocked" to say the least, but know we continue to move in the right direction with racing.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Also, where we were committed to provide you with non-stop music throughout the course we have confirmed the return of "DJ Strange" will again be booming the village with his mix of music! Location unknown, but you're going to surely hear him!
