Ohio’s Pace Per Mile Report for Week of March 26, 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. We have some exciting things happening at Pace Per Mile beginning this week. Owner and co-host Chris Nicholas began his 3,000 mile journey to run across the United States and raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals on Sunday. His route will bring him through several parts of Ohio including Little Hocking, New Marshfield, Chillicothe, Hillsboro and Cincinnati. Find out when he will be in your town and make a donation at www.runandfinish.com.

The Go the Distance 5K Run/Walk and Kids Fun Run is taking place at Marion County Children Services on Saturday, April 07. The Kids Fun Run (11 years & under) is free. The 5k costs $20 if Pre-registered or $25 on Race Day. T-shirts are guaranteed if registered by March 30. Race day registration opens at 8:30 a.m. All proceeds from the race benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Marion County. Awards will be presented for category and overall winners.

Also taking place on April 07 is the Westerville Parks Foundation Bunny Hop 5K in Westerville, Ohio. Your morning will consist of a 3.1 mile run (or walk) and a kid’s 100 yard dash beginning at 9:00 a.m. Following the races, you can enjoy the traditional Easter Egg Hunt at 10:00 a.m. All of the action will take place at the beautiful Hoff Woods Park with proceeds benefiting the Westerville Parks Foundation. I grew up in Westerville and remember going to the Easter Egg Hunt year after year, but the Bunny Hop is a more recent development to this festive day. Let me know if you are planning to participate, and I would love to join you!

Don’t forget you only have until April 02 to register with early bird pricing for the Air Force Marathon and Half Marathon on September 15. The 10K sold out at a record-smashing pace. Register now at www.usafmarathon.com. This race willsell out so if you are planning to attend, don’t wait! I ran the Half Marathon last year and as soon as my knee is healed, I want to go back and run the Full.
