Ohio’s Pace Per Mile Report for Week of February 06, 2012

You can also listen to my report on Pace Per Mile, the 1st Place for Endurance Radio HERE.

This is Sara from wordstorunby.com reporting on the Ohio race scene for Pace Per Mile Radio.
While the weather has been mild here in Columbus, it’s still just brisk enough outside to cook up your favorite pot of chili, which brings us to our first stop in Cleveland, Ohio where they are gearing up for the Chili Bowl Classic. This 5K race takes place on Saturday, February 18 at the Tower 230 Bar & Grille at the Tower City Center. Registration opens at 8:00 a.m. and the race starts at 9:00 a.m. All participants receive a long sleeve t-shirt, chili samples from various Cleveland Area Fire Stations (be sure to vote for your favorite!), and breakfast, beer and drink specials courtesy of Tower 230. Pre- registration is $18.00 through Friday, February 17th at 9AM. Spectators can also sample and vote for their favorite chili for $5.  All proceeds go to the Metro Burn Center.

Looking for something new and fun to do in the greater Columbus area? Premier Races and Ohio Health have teamed up to launch a new 5K, 10K and 15K training series called Scioto Miles. The races take place on March 31 and April 22 at 9:00 a.m. for both event dates. A $75 entry fee gets you not one, but two races to help you tune up for your spring half and full marathons. Registration for these events is still open and the next 1,000 who register will receive a free Brooks Essential Run Jacket. Not sure if you can make both events? Don’t worry, you can sign up for the dates individually, but you don’t get the jacket. Headquarters for the race series is at COSI (Center of Science and Industry) in downtown Columbus. All participants receive a short sleeve technical race shirt with their registration. Visit www.premierraces.com to register or find out more!   
Until next time, you can find me at wordstorunby.com to share your race day stories, offer feedback or just to say hi. Thanks for listening to Pace Per Mile Radio and see you at the next mile marker.
