Ohio’s Pace Per Mile Report for Week of February 27, 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. It’s an exciting week here in Columbus as we welcome athletes from around the globe to the Arnold Sports Festival. Good luck to all the competitors this weekend! And, if you are going to be in town, there is still time to register for the Arnold 5K, which includes admission into the expo. Hope to see you there!
    
Slainte! Is Gaelic for “Good Health” and is used when drinking a toast over a frosty pint. Come celebrate St. Patrick’s Day at the St. Patrick’s Day 4 Miler at Kinsale. The race is on March 10th at the Kinsale Golf and Fitness club in Powell, Ohio. The race starts at 6:00 p.m. and the fully-supported course is open for 80 minutes to accommodate all runner and walkers. The race is $45 through March 09 and $50 on race day if not sold out. All participants will receive a technical gender specific event shirt, Finisher’s medal, First beer (for those 21 and over) and a ticket to see the Reaganomics post-race concert and celebration. The Reaganomics are the Midwest’s most exciting 80’s dance and party band so you don’t want to miss out on this fun event. I’ve run this race before and it just keeps getting better every year. On March 10th, look for me on the course as a volunteer. Register at www.premierraces.com.  

On March 17th, Flannagan’s Bar and Ultrafit-USA is hosting the St. Patrick’s Day 5K at 9:00 a.m. The pre-race breakfast starts at 7:00 a.m. Flannagan’s is located off the 270 outer belt in Columbus at Sawmill and Snouffer Road. The course winds through nearby neighborhoods and finishes up just in time for the biggest ALL DAY St. Patrick’s Party you have ever seen! All participants will receive a good bag consisting of a long sleeve technical shirt, EAS Nutritional product, race number, pre-race breakfast and an all-day pass to the Flannagan’s party. The entry fee is $38 or $45 on race day. The first 150 men and 150 women will receive a special beverage mug to recognize your accomplishment. Register at www.premierraces.com.

And Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio is gearing up for the Shamrock 15K and 5K races on March 11th at Woodridge High School at Noon. Both races are challenging and all finishers deserve a big pat o’ the back when they get done. And while race directors’ promise there’s no pot o’ gold at the top of the Northampton hills, many runners treasure the challenge of doing them. The 15K course is tough and ventures down into the Cuyahoga Valley then back up to finish. The 5K course has rolling hills and still presents a challenge to runners. Register today at www.active.com. Race fees range from $30-$35. All finishers receive a medal and post-race refreshments.      
Until next time, you can find me at wordstorunby.com to share your race day stories or offer feedback. Thanks for listening to Pace Per Mile Radio and see you at the next mile marker.
