RUNOHIO was introduced at the 1988 Columbus Marathon Expo and was first printed March 1989. My brother, Jeff and my mom, Jean, assisted with the start of the publication.  RUNOHIO’s goal when we started was to provide timely running information with the most compete race calendar, results and running news around the state of Ohio.  We cover races in and around Ohio, the Ohio High School Cross Country & Track State Championships. Plus, we cover the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials and the Track & Field U.S. Olympic Trials and National Championships. A number of ups and downs have occurred since we started RUNOHIO, but this issue starts our 32nd year serving the running community.  SunRiseType has provided much of the typesetting and layout for the past thirty years and Chuck Barlett has helped with my web site – www.runohio.com for the past fifteen years.

The sports world is relatively easy to understand; however, there are some practices that confuse me. Several of these mysteries have a definite impact on the sport of track and field, while others do not. Regardless, the following points present challenges as to why they occur:

By Randy & Tia Accetta (Randy is the RRCA Director of Coaching Education) - RRCA recommends all members, in accordance with current Federal guidelines, to cancel or postpone all events/organized group training runs/group training programs if these activities occur between now and the end of April and beyond based on local and state government regulations.

The Youngstown Road Runners Club was founded in the spring of 1975 and held weekly races at a cost of 50 cents per runner.  The club soon joined up with Road Runners Clubs of America.  Membership was $5 per individual and approximately 1100 joined.

SEOTR all started with one goal - to help foster a community of trail runners in Southeastern Ohio.
