Half Marathon Run/Walk: Limited to 1000 runners. All runners receive a race shirt & unique medal at the finish line. Course closing is 3:20 which is a 15:10 per mile pace.
Half Marathon Relay: Limited to 250 runners (125 teams). Sign up yourself and create a team name. Your partner then signs up and joins your team. The exchange is just before the 7-mile mark (Foote Road). Runner 2 then picks up and finishes the race. Relay runners both receive a shirt and a medal. Transporation is provided to the exchange if needed, but it is less than 2 miles from the Square so we offer suggestions to registered runners to make this an easy exchange. Stay tuned for emails closer to the date to help you plan! (see time limits above)
Half Marathon Competitive Walk: This event starts alongside the Half Marathon Run/Walk and Relay. Walkers will have a sticker on their bib to indicate Competitive Walking Division. This event allows for NO running at all! As we continue to grow this event we hope to add age group awards and more. For now, we have awards for top finishers. All walkers receive a shirt and a medal.
5K Run: This event begins at 7 AM and is open to all ages! All runners/walkers receive a rach shirt! We have overall and age group awards for this event as well.
Start/Finish: Event starts and finishes on the Historic Medina Square. The course runs through our beautiful rolling city, around the crushed gravel trail of Lake Medina, a brief section of grass and then through scenic neighborhoods. Runners can choose from the Half-Marathon or 5K race. The event will be part of the Ohio Challenge Series and is being held by the Medina County Road Runners. Water Stops, Gatorade & gels available to all runners, along with food and fun at the finish line! All runners will receive a gender specific tech shirt.

Walkers are welcome! Competitive Walking Division has been added.
If below this pace at the 10K, runners may be asked to continue on the sidewalk. Our course is primarily residential so you will still be safe to run/walk. We wait at the finish line for all runners to finish, but our course will begin closing for our police to return to work and our volunteers to begin to clean up.
