Register for the 2019 5KDEVO

RACE OF D.O.O.M - Sunday, July 28th 2019 - Downtown Akron

The 5KDEVO is a run/walk in Akron Ohio where it all began! Join hundreds of spuds as we flood the streets of Downtown Akron. Every participant will get a devolved t-shirt (that we will ask everyone to wear on race day!) and a DEVO finisher medal. DEVO music will fill the air throughout the race!

A very special post race celebration will follow with unique DEVO inspired awards!

RACE OF D.O.O.M?? Really?! Whatayamean..?

That's right..."Race of Doom" - a great song from DEVO's "New Traditionalists" album circa 1981. In this case, it's a theme for our 2019 5K DEVO Event. You might notice that D.O.O.M. is used as an acronym in this year's graphics. Exactly what it stands for, as well as what the song was originally inspired by, will be revealed on the morning of the race!

Virtual Runner - This option allows you to run at home and not travel to Akron. You receive a finisher medal, race bib, and race shirt. Just make sure to take a photo of yourself in your gear and hashtag us with #5KDEVO
