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!

July Excitement Takes Over!

Welcome July 2015! Ohio has had its share of rain for the month of June (over 6 inches...) and now it's fun, fast racing for all the "young at heart" on a great challenging 5K course in Liberty Center, Ohio. Have you signed up yet? Early registration allows us to pre-plan our event and takes the edge off of race management! That "wait till the last minute" list of more shirts, food, prizes, bibs, volunteers is eliminated. We put a lot of energy into the Tigertown 5000 to provide the best of what racing has to offer! Sign up now deadline for early "low cost" entries is Wednesday, July 15th... 2015 Tigertown again is paying out a premium for our course record! Each year it remains unbroken we add $100 to the women & men records... This year the womens premium is $300 (2012 Dorcus Chesang-Kenya 16:54) and mens premium is $200 (2013 Julius Kiptoo-Kenya 14:27) Contact the race director with additional questions
