SANDUSKY, Ohio – Cedar Point will offer three-days of savings to members of the armed forces and public safety personnel for American Heroes Weekend during Father’s Day Weekend at the Sandusky, Ohio, amusement park/resort.

Cedar Point Press Release

SANDUSKY, Ohio – There will be a lot of people running around Cedar Point on Father’s Day morning, Sunday, June 19 and none of them will be getting in line for a roller coaster!

Cedar Point has announced plans to host the first Cedar Point 5K Challenge, a 5,000-meter race (3.1 miles) that will take runners along the park’s legendary midways and past the largest collection of rides and roller coasters on the planet!  The race will take place on Sunday, June 19 and will start at 7 a.m.  An Awards Ceremony will take place immediately after the race.

The entry fee for the Cedar Point 5K Challenge is $25, which includes parking on race day and a coupon good for $12 off a regular adult admission ticket to Cedar Point on Sunday, June 19.  Each participant will also receive a Tech race T-shirt.  A portion of the race proceeds will be used to support the cross-country teams at Sandusky High School, St. Mary Central Catholic High School and Perkins High School.

“The new Cedar Point 5K Challenge will be a fun way to raise money for local schools,” said John Hildebrandt, general manager of Cedar Point.  “Running through the park in the morning when it is empty of guests is something you don’t get to do very often.  It will be a real treat for the runners.”

Plaques featuring Snoopy will be awarded to the overall male and female finishers. The top three male and female placers in the following age groups: 13 and under; 14 to 19; 20 to 29; 30 to 39; 40 to 49; 50 to 59; and 60 and older; will each receive a commemorative race medal.

Participants must preregister to be a part of this exciting new race.  Entry forms are available by visiting the race’s web site: www.cedarpoint5kchallenge.com, which was developed by the web design class at Perkins High School.  All entries must be submitted by Sunday, June 12.  Preregistration is required.  There will not be any day-of-race registration.

Race packet pickup will take place on Friday, June 17 (from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.) and on Saturday, June 18 (from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) at Cedar Point’s Castaway Bay indoor waterpark resort.
