If you are not sure if you are registered or here

Sunday, November 7th, 2021 - 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.

ONE-OF-A-KIND DEVO music will fill the air after the race!

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

November means Turkey Monkey

That's right...what better way to prepare for Thanksgiving than to recognize the Turkey Monkey, one of the early iconic images from DEVO. Click to learn the history of the Turkey Monkey

+ The event will be an IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL event.If you have friends running the race you are welcome to have them pick up your stuff and mail it to you or give it to you to run at home. We will also be at the DEVOtional passing out the race kit if you simply want to purchase the items and run at home. We will ONLY ship the Virtual Kits to those within the USA. The cost of shipping is bundled in the registration price.

+ We will be moving the starting line slightly to Cascade Plaza, which is just down the street from Lock 3, for all race activities. You will have the chance to take your photo in front of the sculpture that DEVO posed in front of in their early years!

+ Our start time will be at 10:00am, which gives you a little more time to recover from the DEVOtional on Saturday night!

+ You will be able to take photos in front of a variety of tire Energy Domes that the City of Akron has placed around the race site.

+ We will be passing out our best medal yet….featuring the TURKEY MONKEY! Look for the unveiling later this Summer. You will NOT want to miss this one!
