The BZ Classic 5k is the new race to replace the historical Elk County Classic. This race is sponsored by the Elk County Striders, and is to honor Mr. Ben Zappa who is one of the founding members of the Striders’ club back in 1983. This 5k runs along the Clarion-Little Toby rail-trail in historic Ridgway, PA. Each pre-registered entrant will receive a race shirt. Trophies to 1st, 2nd, & 3rd in each male and female age group. Pre-registration is $20. Race-day registration is $25 (and shirt is not guaranteed). Come join the fun on a beautiful course, and help us honor a running legend known as “BZ”!
