Heartthrob Run/Walk

January 1st - February 14th, 2021

Fundraiser for HCA

Run, walk, bounce, skip 45 miles in 45 days!  Starting on January 1st we will have a virtual run/walk through Holmes County.  We will virtually start in Loudonville and make our way across Holmes County to our virtual Sugarcreek and turn around and walk back to our virtual Millersburg as our finish line.  You can take this at your own pace as long as you complete it by February 14th.

The registration fee will benefit Holmes Center for the Arts as we continue to bring quality instruction, programming and a new building to our community.  

What is it?

A virtual run/walk is a web based community of people who want to challenge themselves in accomplishing exercise through a group of people working toward a common goal.  

Each participant will register on our website.  Once the participant is registered they will be sent an invitation to join a Facebook group.  This is where we can encourage one another, post pictures of progress and see where each participant is in Holmes County.   You will receive weekly email updates that will include encouragement and status updates.  Each participant will receive a T-shirt.  Each participant that accomplishes the 45 miles will receive a medal of accomplishment at the end.  This is entirely on the honor system.  

Who is this for?

This is for runners, walkers, young and old.  This is for athletes and this is for the couch potato.  

How to Participate?

Once a week you can submit your miles via email to be added to our progress report.   Each participant must be able to track miles traveled via a step counter, phone, or watch, etc.  You can run/walk outside, on a treadmill, pace in your home.  However you can get your miles in.  


This event will start on January 1st and be completed by February 14th.  However, participants can register as late as January 11th.


Anywhere in the community!  This is a virtual event.  I hope to make this fun, allow people to connect and do something healthy along the way.


Your participation in this event is a fun event for everyone who needs/wants a community, needs encouragement and believes in the vision of a quality home for our county’s Art Center.


It costs $60 to register.  Funds will benefit the Art Center and you will receive a t-shirt, medal upon completion, participation in an exclusive facebook group and weekly encouragement and updates via email.
