The third annual Health in the Harbor will be held on Saturday, May 30, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in the Village of Fairport Harbor along the shores of Lake Erie and will be held rain or shine. This one-day free event is one you and your children won’t want to miss! This event is an opportunity to empower families, children and adults to live healthier lives through active lifestyles.
Health in the Harbor follows the JUST RUN Lake County 5K morning race with pre-registered students representing twenty-seven schools who will run through the Village of Fairport Harbor. The race finishes at the event’s entrance. At 10 a.m., after the race, runners will join their families and event attendees on the beach to be part of a record-breaking experience. Lake County is trying to break the record for the “Largest Fist Bump Explosion Chain.” Everyone is invited to be part of the fun and help set the record.
Residents from all over Northeast Ohio will have the opportunity to spend the day experiencing a variety of free interactive events and activities! All family members can participate in the free fitness classes, which begin with a 10:30 a.m. – 11:15 a.m. yoga class, followed by family boot camp from 11:30 a.m. – 12:15 p.m., Zumba on the beach from 12:15 p.m. – 1 p.m., and a FitKick class from 1:15 p.m. – 2 p.m. A towel or mat is needed for the yoga class.

Erie to the sounds of music played by the event DJ. Free health screenings will be provided by Lake Health. Health in the Harbor is a great opportunity to try something new!
