I hope you and your family are doing well. RUNOHIO is waiting for the go ahead for road races until we print the next issue. I will continue to update the RUNOHIO web page  http://www.runohio.com and send the free monthly E-Newsletter.

Sources tell me years ago Miami University discussed dropping men’s track & field.

Even though there will be no parades or road races, hopefully we will remember the reason for Memorial Day.  I hope you are able to enjoy the weekend with family and friends.  Stay healthy and I hope to see you at a race soon.  Matt McGowan

When I was in graduate school at Miami University I started the women’s cross country team as a club sport through the Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. After the first year with the team finishing fourth in the All Ohio Cross Country meet I met with the Athletic Director.
