The Monongahela Area Revitalization Corporation (MARC) held its third 5K Run/Walk on August 10, 2019. This year’s event coincided with the 70th anniversary of the opening of the Cox Market in August of 1949 and the Monongahela 250th Birthday Weekend.

The “On Your MARC Cox Market Best Yet 5K Run/Walk” began and ended at the Monongahela Aquatorium and the 101 participants meandered through the neighborhoods of Monongahela and New Eagle.

Our youngest participant was seven years old and the most mature walker was 72 years young.
