RUNOHIO would like to wish you and your family a Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas. I hope you can run one of the many Holiday races listed in the December Race Calendar
 
 
Have a Happy, Safe and Healthy New Year!
 
When you are making your New Year' Resolutions, I hope you will consider volunteering at a local road race. If possible, help to sponsor a local race or help a new runner understand proper training. Also, help your neighbor who might need some assistance. If we all do a few kind acts to help others who are nearby, I am sure 2020 will be a great year.
