5 Reasons to Run the Beethoven 5k

Our annual Beethoven 5k is right around the corner, and we don’t want you to miss out on one of the most fun events all summer! With the warm weather in full swing, opportunities abound for families to get out and get active in our community. So why run the Beethoven 5k, you might ask? Check out these 5 reasons why the Beethoven 5k is different from other summer activities:

It’s perfect for the whole family. No, really! In addition to the 5k run, we also have a 1-mile walk that’s perfect for young children and everyone else! Plus, starting at 8 AM means it’s safer to bring the little ones out due to cooler morning temperatures.

It combines art with exercise. Not really into running but love a good classical piece? Not into music but love running? Because the 5k combines these two seemingly different elements, we attract a wide range of audiences. It’s the perfect community event because it brings together people with different interests around a common cause.

You get local swag. We are so grateful for our community partners that have generously donated gift cards, swag, and more to make this race special for our runners! We are excited to connect our runners to local businesses that make Westerville what it is.


You get to explore Westerville! Runners will explore the streets of historic Westerville, seeing all the wonderful charm that our city has to offer! The lovely scenery make this 5k unique–there’s no place like Westerville!

It supports a small organization IN your community. All proceeds benefit the Westerville Symphony, a nonprofit directly providing programming for you and your family. By running, you have a direct impact on the programming we are able to provide and the quality of that programming. Talk about a runner’s high!

We hope you will join us! Register for the Beethoven 5k today at runsignup.com/beethoven5k OR sign up to volunteer by emailing Kelsie Fields at fields.436@osu.edu.
