North Olmsted Mayor Kevin Kennedy’s 5K race and walk was held on Sept. 23 at North Olmsted Park. In this year’s race, 12 of the 13 age group winners broke the previous record times.

North Olmsted native Zachary Kozik, age 18, was the overall race winner and male open division winner with a time of 16:43.7, a new record. The top female open division winner was Olmsted Falls native Liz Neudeck, age 15, with her time of 22:38.4, also a new record.
