Eastwood Mall is once again a proud sponsor of the 2014 Peace Race which will be held on Sunday, October 26th. The race will feature a 10K, 2 mile run/walk and a FREE kids run for kids 10 & under.
The Youngstown Peace Race was founded in 1975 in an effort to bring together athletes from around the world for a day of competition, friendship and understanding. At the time, the country was still reeling from the effects of Viet Nam, but Jack Cessna – a Youngstown runner and activist – took the first step to unite people peacefully through running by initiating the race. Today – 40 years later – the Youngstown Peace Race remains as an annual running event that celebrates Youngstown, running and beauty of MIll Creek Park. The Peace Race provides us with a community event that celebrates the sport of running, the spirit of the athlete and the momentary heartbeat of peace. Athletes come from all over the world. They come for the competition. They come to celebrate peace. For the past 40 years, champions have come to Youngstown to be a part of this exciting event.
This year, Marathoner Dick Beardsley featured with Alberto Salazar in the book “Duel in the Sun” will be at the race to celebrate the 40th Annual Youngstown Peace Race!
