The Race


We are excited to announce the return of the Run Like a Girl 5/10k on Sunday, August 4th. As the title suggests, this event is exclusively for women, regardless of age or running/walking experience (sorry guys, this one's for the girls).


Significant others, family members, and friends are welcome to attend as cheerleaders. Proceeds to benefit March of Dimes.




Starting Point /

6:30 am Arrival

Your race will begin inside the Historic Crew Stadium at 7:30am and prior to the public opening of the Ohio State Fair. Runners and walkers will exit the stadium to begin a journey toward the Ohio State Fairgrounds where you will weave past hundreds of rides, exhibits, food vendors and more. 

Here is the map of the 5K course. The 10K course will be a double loop. Note: All 10K runners must be able to complete the course in under :90.
