Join us Sunday, Sept. 13, at Dorchester Park, for the 7th annual I Run For… event. We’re offering two great races on one day; each is fun, challenging and scenic.

Once again, we’ll have a 5K which uses the paved pathway going alongside the beautiful Whitney Point Reservoir. There’s no need to worry about cars ruining the vibe because the 5K course does not use any public roads. (SIGN UP NOW | SEE MAP)

New for this year: we’re excited to introduce an 8-miler that uses the 5K course and extends onto a seasonal access road on the west side of the reservoir. This race is basically part-road, part-trail and the course goes most of the way around “Dorchester Lake.”  Although the seasonal access road will be open, there is minimal traffic and drivers have to take it slow because of the terrain.

In keeping with our charitable mission, net proceeds will benefit A Room to Heal and The James cancer center at The Ohio State University.

We know you have spirit, so get your workmates, family and/or friends together and come represent at the 2020 I Run For… races. You can show your colors in our Team Spirit Challenge. Instead of recognizing the team with the fastest race times, we want to offer a prize true to the spirit of “all faces, all paces.” The team that brings the most runners to our event (5K or 8-miler) will get a cool trophy and bragging rights. On top of that, we’ll give a portion of our net proceeds to the cancer-related charity of the winning team’s choice. When you register for the race, make sure to enter your group’s name, so you’ll be counted in the Team Spirit Challenge. Discounted entries are available for groups of more than 10 runners. Contact us at irunforhalfmarathon@gmail.com if you want to take advantage of the discount, or if you have any other questions.

The time and location of our packet pickup will be added to this website in August.  Follow us on Facebook and receive updates as soon as they are available.  If you have any questions in the meantime, just feel free to reach out by e-mail.
