Thank you to everyone who came out to run, walk and volunteer. We could not have done it without you.

This year we are adding something new to make the race more memorable. We are allowing teams to tell us who they are running for and the names will be announced before the race begins. You may let us know at Packet Pick-Up or by phone to: 513-309-7464. So far people have let us know these teams:
The Tom and Nancy Gertz family will be running in Honor of Bart Gertz and in Memory of Michael Gertz
Albrink Family will be walking in Memory of Roy Wiehe, Tom Martin and Mrs. Albrink
The Volk Family will be running in Memory of Kyle
The Rusche Team will be running in Memory of Ray Rusche
The Gibby Family, The McGuire Family & The Laird Family will be running In Memory of Keira Ling Gibby
Rob and Sharon are walking in Memory of Barbara Farssing
Did you know that the Running Scared 5k hosts a College Challenge with a loving cup trophy? When you pick up your packet, tell us what college you currently are attending and we will tally the numbers for an announcement at the post race party of which college wins. Winning college will be engraved on the plaque for display. University of Cincinnati and Wright State University won the first 2 years. Get your friends together and make sure you tell us as you pick up your race packet.
Did you know this year, we are encouraging teams to walk In Memory or In Honor of someone? Let us know before the race, who your team is walking for and their name will be announced at the beginning of the race. Need more info, call 513-309-7464
The Cool thing about our race is the course. It’s FLAT and runs through the graveyard where there are some spooky surprises. Our runners and walkers are invited to wear costumes! The first 50 men and first 50 women to cross the finish line get some awesome mugs as awards.
The Post Race Party is the coolest. We have a live band,a beer garden, lots of wonderful food from our sponsors, a chili cook-off, door prizes, raffle baskets and indoor bathrooms!
We think it’s cool that all of our money raised goes to Youth Education. Last year we raised $35,000. We hope to raise even more this year as the race continues to grow. Join us and have a blast for a great cause!
