YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Hundreds of people hit the road Sunday racing to raise money for the Alzheimer Association.
It’s called RunYtown, sponsored by Second Sole Youngstown. The 10-mile relay course gave runners a picturesque tour of Youngstown, including a few rolling hills through scenic Mill Creek Park.
Last year, the event brought in $3,000, which was the goal again this year.
“Alzheimer’s is a cause that has affected a lot of people at our store, actually. Our owner and some other employees, their parents have been affected by it,” said Mark Lipinsky, race director. “That was the driving force behind reaching out to Alzheimer’s to benefit them.”
The top male runner was Mitchell Thornton with a time of 55 minutes and 45 seconds. The top female runner was Samantha Hamilton, clocking a time of 1 hour and 30 seconds.
