JPM 5k & Musik Fest

The 10th annual JPM 5k & Musik Festival (+ Family Fun Walk!) is headed back to Apple Creek, OH in 2023!

This year we will be having the Smokin Chippers FOOD TRUCK roll up to serve the 5k & Family Fun Walk registrants, as well as offer food for purchase to spectators. A FREE COMMUNITY CONCERT will be provided, as always.

Top Male and Top Female will each receive a $100 gift card to Vertical Runner of Wooster. Four “Match My Run” random times will each earn a $25 gift card to Vertical Runner of Wooster.

This will also be the first chance for #5kMay2023 Finishers to collect their Finisher’s T-shirt.

Don’t miss the fun! Come on out to the Apple Creek Park on Saturday evening, July 8. Bring a lawn chair or blanket. The FREE COMMUNITY CONCERT is open to everyone.
