About Our Race

Our 5K kicks off on OVH’s main campus. The course runs throughout Kennedy Township, and the pace car is driven by Kennedy Township Police Chief Bruni!

The finish line is back at OVH’s main entrance, and the dual after-party and awards ceremony are held in OVH’s Medical Office Building parking lot!

Prizes will be awarded to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place male and female, regardless of age, who cross the finish line.


Ohio Valley Hospital is located at:

25 Heckel Road
Kennedy Township, PA 15136

**Please Note: Construction Road Closures are starting May 7th, 2018 in Kennedy Township. They will not affect the race course, but may affect how you get to the race!

About a mile of McKees Rocks Road in Kennedy Township, between Hawthorne Drive and the Kennedy border, will close due to repairs. This closure may last a few weeks.

Traffic coming from Route 60 or Interstate 79 should go west on Route 60, right onto Beaver Grade Road, right on Silver Lane, then take another right on Clever Road back to McKees Rocks Road.  Then turn left onto Heckel road at the three-way stop.

Traffic coming from McKees Rocks can take the same route in reverse.

Traffic coming from Crafton-Ingram should take Windgap Avenue toward McKees Rocks to the Windgap Bridge. Turn left onto Singer Avenue and then immediately take a slight left uphill toward Chartiers Avenue/Chartiers Avenue Extension/McKees Rocks Road. Take this road until the three-way stop sign with Heckel Road. Turn right onto Heckel Road.
