June was a great month for track & field.  The Ohio High School Athletic Association 113th annual Boys and the 46th annual Girls Track & Field Championship were held after the 2020 Championship was cancelled because of COVID 19.  However, I was only able to go to the Division II Championship as each Championship was held at different venues. A number of outstanding performances were turned in at each Championship. 

Good luck to all U.S.A. athletes including a number of Ohio athletes competing in the July 23 - August 8 Tokyo Olympics and the Track & Field athletes competing in Track & Field Olympics July 30 to August 8.

Mark your calendar for three races in Circleville this summer/fall.  The Roundtown Classic 5K/5 Miler July 17th, Dog Days 5K August 7th  and the 34th annual Circleville Classic 5 Miler October 23rd 

The weather during the U.S. Olympic Track & Field Trials was the hottest ever for Eugene as the temperature reached 100 degree on the final day. Despite the weather a number of outstanding performances were recorded including two World records.

Sunday, August 1st - At this time we hope to offer an in person 5K Run at the Scioto Audubon - Metro Park and a Virtual 5K Run/Walk and a 1 Mile Virtual Run/Walk.  Join the Columbus Running Company and RUNOHIO for this eighth annual event in memory of Jeff McGowan and Mark Dempsey.
