Coordinating 500 runners is a complicated process, but you can make it easier. If you even think you'll be able to convince others to run with you, we recommend creating a team just in case. This way, others can join your team later or edit their own registrations. And you'll be able to keep track of who's registered from your group and also ensure you all are placed in the same heat.
To take advantage of the "5th Runner Free" discount, full payment and registration information for each individual will be required at payment checkout. Registrations can always be edited later if changes need to be made. Use this to get your lame brother off the couch or to make the first move with the cute guy from the office. Or, take the egalitarian route and everyone can save a little.
Online registration is now closed. You may register for $60 at packet pick up or onsite June 1st.
Registration fee is nonrefundable.
Onsite registrants not guaranteed a swag bag, race medal or a specific heat time.
Registration will be rolling and available from 9:00am-12:00pm on June 1st.
Directions and Parking:
Enter East Fork State Park from the South (Bethel) side via State Route 125. Take Elklick Road past the park office. Turn left on Park Road 2 (toward the Beach) and follow it to the parking area adjacent to the Matt Maupin Pavilion. The pavilion will serve as race headquarters. There is amble parking near the pavilion, though carpooling is always encouraged. Attendants will direct you once you arrive at the parking area.
Packet Pickup and Check-In:
An optional packet pickup will be available on May 30th from 6-9pm at Crossroads East Side (4450 Eastgate S Drive, Cincinnati, OH 45245) in the main atrium. This will save you time and eliminate stress on our volunteers the morning of the race. Additionally, you can bring your procrastinating friend to packet pickup to register for the on-site fee of $60. On site check in will open at 8:30am June 1st. If you choose to check in on site, please be completed at least 30 minutes prior to your heat start time.
