The Kerstetter 5K, Saturday, July 12, 2014

Washington Avenue and Elywood Drive residents should receive the following notice from the Kerstetter 5K staff, reposted below (minus the map):


Dear Washington Avenue and Elywood Drive residents:

This letter is to inform you that the 2014 Kerstetter 5K Run / 1 Mile Walk will take place on Saturday, July 12, 2014 beginning at 8:30 a.m.

The Run’s route takes in parts of downtown Elyria and your neighborhood. A portion of Washington Avenue (affecting Elywood Drive) will be closed off for the safety of the runners.  

On the reverse of this notice you will see the official route. The runners are scheduled to take off from Kerstetter Way (next to the Elyria Police Station) at 8:30am. We have been very prompt on sending the runners out each year on time and expect to do the same this year.

We anticipate that the total time of the roadway closure to be approximately one (1) hour. The last runner to cross the finish line on Kerstetter Way last year had a time of 52 minutes and 28 seconds.

An Elyria Police Officer and an Elyria Police Auxiliary will be stationed at each closure. If you experience an emergency (requiring Police, Fire and/or ambulance) these checkpoints will be in place and ready to support any public safety occurrence.

We thank you in advance for your support and cooperation for this event. An event dedicated to the memory of our fellow officer killed in the line of duty – James Kerstetter.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact:

Elyria Police Sgt. Rick Buckway @ Buckway@cityofelyria.org

Elyria Police Det. Dan Sumpter @ Sumpter@cityofelyria.org

Thank you,
The Kerstetter 5K Staff
