LHC North Canal Classic 5k Road Race

The Lawrence History Center hosts a road race in the North Canal district of Lawrence to raise awareness of the History Center in the community, and to promote fitness and economic and cultural development in the City of Lawrence. The route highlights many of the revitalization efforts in the city’s parks and historic mill buildings, and will utilize local vendors whenever feasible in all aspects of the event production and promotion. The date was selected to coincide with Ralph Fasanella Day (May 18), honoring the artist whose well-known paintings of The Great Strike honor the role of Lawrence in the labor movement.
