It's been awesome having the Wooster Brick Run return in 2016 and 2017, but guess what....Flickinger Hill still isn't flat, so, we have another race to put on! Back for 2018 -- The Wooster Brick Run!

For many years, the Wooster Brick Run was considered the most popular running event in Wooster. Whether they started at Freelander Park, the YMCA or at the high school, one thing was for sure, upon your finish, you got a Wooster Paver Brick. Early records indicate that the manufacturing of bricks in Wayne County began around 1872. The northwest corner of Wayne County contained large deposits of clay and shale, important for brick making. Most Wooster bricks were manufactured at a plant located at the corner of Bowman Street and Mechanicsburg Road. “Wooster Pavers,” were used as curb bricks. By the late 1960s the company had closed. Over the last 50 years, these collectible bricks have started to dwindle away, but some still remain-most of those that are in good condition are in the houses of the local runners who ran this back in the day. Well, not only did we find some, and in good condition...we're giving them away as awards-again in 2018!

The bricks will be awarded to the top 3 males, top 3 females, top overall male and female Masters(40-49), and top overall male and female Grandmasters(50+). All awards will be based off of finish time, regardless of starting time. Each registration comes with a $10 Vertical Runner of Wooster Gift card, $5 Spoon Market Gift card (to use at the EPIC afterparty), and a Custom Winter Hat with logo replicating the original Wooster Paver bricks.  Hats will be given out to the first 200 registrants upon race completion.

You will still have 3 options at sign up:

Brick Run 25k (run only)-  $15.00 through August 31, $20.00 September 1 through race week

Brick Run and $5 donation to the scholarship fund- $20.00 through August 31, $25.00 September 1 through race week

Brick Run and donation to the scholarship fund with a Brooks podium long sleeve tech shirt- $30.00 through August 31, $35.00 September 1 through race week

The race will start at 7:00am and continue on in waves every 15 minutes, all based off of your projected finish time which you will enter in at registration. No early starts!

REGISTRATION IS LIMITED TO THE FIRST 200 PARTICIPANTS, NO EXCEPTIONS.  SIGN UP EARLY TO GUARANTEE YOUR SPOT.
