BUCKEYE LAKE – More than 160 runners and walkers didn’t let Saturday’s rain stop them from taking part in the Friends of the Buckeye Lake Library’s 6th annual 5K Run/ Walk.
The weather did affect race day registration, but still 25 participants signed up Saturday morning. State Representative Tim Schaffer was the official starter.
Thanks to sponsors and runners/ walkers, the event has become one of The Friends’ most successful fundraisers. The volunteer group is responsible for the library’s building expenses including the leasehold improvements, utilities, insurance and cleaning. Fairfield Medical Center and the Buckeye Lake Area Civic Association were the lead sponsors this year.
The 7th Annual 5K Run/Walk is set for Saturday, June 18, 2016.
