Description – The 5K DEVO is a run/walk in Akron Ohio where it all began. Join hundreds of spuds as we flood the streets of downtown Akron. Every participant will get a devolved t-shirt (that we will ask everyone to wear on race day) and a DEVO finisher medal. DEVO music will fill the air throughout the race.‚Äč

RACE OF D.O.O.M?? Really?! Whatayamean..? - That's right..."Race of Doom" - a great song from DEVO's "New Traditionalists" album circa 1981. In this case, it's the theme for our 2019 5K DEVO Event. You might notice that D.O.O.M. is used as an acronym in this year's graphics. Exactly what it stands for, as well as what the song was originally inspired by, will be revealed on the morning of the race.
