Our DEVOtional 2017 event in Ohio is scheduled at The Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland on Friday July 28th & Saturday July 29th, and we are happy to announce an Akron-based ENCORE event in conjunction with DEVOtional 2017.
In honor of DEVO:
The first annual 5KDEVO Race - Sun. July 30th in Akron, Ohio!
A three mile race through the streets of DEVO's hometown as a tribute to Akron's own devolution band. Participants can run or walk the course, which will be peppered with DEVO historical facts & music. Each participant receives a DEVO tech running shirt, 3D glasses, and the opportunity to receive a highly devloved 5KDEVO finisher medal upon completing course. Additionally, overall & age group awards will be presented at end of race. (Custom 5KDEVO trophies!). Band members will be waiting at the finish line to congratulate the first few finishers. Limited edition DEVO merchandise will be available on site. Proceeds go to a charity of the band's choosing (TBA).
