When considering the current state of athletics on all levels that Covid 19 has caused, it is important that a great deal of imagination and innovation be used in order to ensure that sports continue; therefore, we must learn, unite, and work very hard to find effective ways to make cross-country appealing and viable, yet make certain that the rules set forth are followed in order to assure that our season continues. The same is true for track and field should the pandemic continue into spring.

RUNOHIO would like to spotlight your running club.  Send RUNOHIO a 3-5 paragraph article about your running club and we will be glad to share your club information with readers of RUNOHIO.

We understand that COVID-19 has turned your world upside down as it has ours. Normally we would be seeing you at various Fall Marathon race expos but clearly that is not happening. We also know that most of you would be purchasing your Spring Marathon / Half Marathon before the end of the year.

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the 33rd Annual Circleville Classic will be a virtual run/walk. You can pick your own 5-mile, 5K, or 1-mile route and join in the fun. During registration, you will have your choice of a short or long-sleeved shirt that will be mailed directly to you.

Cross Country - Even with a number of invitationals being cancelled, Cross Country is in full swing. Good luck to all of the runners this season and always. Hopefully, we can social distance and wear masks and have a complete season. If you are not running, I hope you can watch a meet or two of your favorite school and support these great athletes. Rod O’Donnell updated article on - Life Lessons from Cross Country.
