The staff of RUNOHIO wishes you and your family a Happy, Healthy, and Safe New Year!  Hopefully, this winter you will be able to continue your running. 

When you are making your New Year’ Resolutions, I hope you will consider volunteering at a local road race.  If possible, help to sponsor a local race or help a new runner understand proper training and your neighbor who might need some assistance. If we all do a few kind acts to help others who are nearby, I am sure 2020 will be a Great Year!

Have a Great 2020!!

Matt McGowan
