I know that underwear costumes can be a little questionable, and the race directors definitely want all runners to put on your underwear and express yourselves! But, please be sure to comply with Ohio Revised Code 2907.09 on Public Indecency and cover up your private parts or you will not be allowed to participate. Please wear no less than you would to the beach, but no more than you would to fight off Evil Villains! Best costumes will be awarded for: Best Super Hero or Evil Villain, Best Original Super Hero or Evil Villain, Best Male Underwear Runner Costume, Best Female Underwear Runner Costume.
Registration is still available online through August 21, and for the 10K costs $37 (though race day), for the 5K $32 (through race day), for the 1 mile is free for kids under 12 (without a shirt) and is $20 (through race day).
