Pray~Hope~Believe 5K

Cincinnati, OH | July 4, 2016


May I run with a stroller?
Absolutely!  We do ask that you start at the rear of the race to ensure everyone's safety.

May I walk rather than run?
We love walkers! Walkers are welcome to walk the race and should line up in the back of the pack.  We have awards for competitive walkers, but leisurely walkers are also welcome.  Just come have fun while supporting a great cause!

Can I pick up my friend's packet?
Absolutely! Please just inform your friend that you are doing so. No ID is necessary.

Can children participate in the 5K?
Yes, but should be accompanied by an adult.

Boy, I am thirsty. Will there be a water stop?
Yes! A water stop is located around the halfway mark of the course and is powered by volunteers. Please thank them as you run by!

I can't run anymore. Can I transfer my registration to my colleague?
Unfortunately, there are no refunds or transfers.

I can't run. Do you need volunteers?
Yes! Please contact Rick and Lynne Merk at

I know a company who might like to sponsor this event. How can they get involved?
Terrific! Please contact Rick and Lynne Merk at or go to The Pray~Hope~Believe Foundation and click "Events".

What charities does this race support?
All proceeds go to The Pray~Hope~Believe Foundation and The Cure Starts Now Foundation.

I plan to walk the race and am afraid that I won't finish in time.
No worries! This course is open for walkers. Come out and have a good time!

What time does the race start, really?
The race will start promptly at 8:30 AM.

Where can I find out how I did?
