Supporting Youth Education!

The Running Scared 5k was first started in 2008 and benefits Youth Education. To date approximately $320,000 has been raised to help children in the Cincinnati Valley area.
Since we cannot gather together as a group for 2020, we are offering a Virtual Challenge. You can participate on your favorite course route and post your results here. You are not limited to a 5K. Run or Walk any distance you wish. We will combine the distances of all participants. Our goal is to log 1000 total miles. Help us to reach our goal. By participating, you will have some fun and you will also be supporting our cause, which is as important as ever.
