Marlene Watt Poker Run

Imagine a bunch of leprechauns winding their way throughout Ravenna, collecting cards for a chance to win $500!  That’s what is planned for the 16th annual Marlene Watt Memorial Event which will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2020, St. Patrick’s Day, at City Park (165 Oakwood St, Ravenna).  Participants can register three ways; via Parks and Rec registration page at, mailing in the registration form found throughout many local businesses, and stopping by or calling the Ravenna Parks and Recreation Dept. 530 North Freedom Street upstairs from the RAC or 330-296-2864.  The Early Bird entry fee for the 3 mile run/walk (2 mile option) is $27.00 per adult and $17 per child until Feb. 29, 2020.  Early Bird registrants will be guaranteed an event shirt.  The fee after March 1, 2020 is $37 adult/ $25 child. No t-shirts can be guaranteed with late registration.

All proceeds go to the Ravenna Parks and Recreation Youth Scholarship Fund to allow underprivileged youth in Ravenna the opportunity to participate in Ravenna Parks and Recreation sports/programs.  This event is NOT just for runners, but for those who just love to go for a walk with family and friends.
