Sunday, August 1st - At this time we hope to offer an in person 5K Run at the Scioto Audubon - Metro Park and a Virtual 5K Run/Walk and a 1 Mile Virtual Run/Walk.  Join the Columbus Running Company and RUNOHIO for this eighth annual event in memory of Jeff McGowan and Mark Dempsey.

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 Athletic Association 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 33rd year serving the running community.  Sunrise Type 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 sixteen years.

As of assembling the race calendar the following races to the best of our knowledge are in person event. 

The track and field season is heating up. I hope to see you at the OHSAA State Track and Field State Championships in June or another race this Spring. This year’s OHSAA Track & Field Championships will be a lot different, as the meet will not be held at the OSU Jesse Owens Stadium. Instead, it will be at the following three locations: Division I at Hilliard Darby High School; Division II at Pickerington North High School; Division III at Westerville North High School.
