Description

Join us for the 35th Annual Grant G. Talbott Road Race! We hope you will help us celebrate this milestone race and OCTC’s anniversary by ensuring student success. Proceeds from this race support the Grant G. Talbott Scholarship that assists students experiencing dire financial need. Grant G. Talbott, III served as a counselor at OCTC for 10 years and coordinated the OCTC Road Race from 1998-2007. A mentor and friend to many, Grant will long be remembered for his commitment to education and student success. This run-walk is committed to honoring his legacy. This year we also remember our friend Carl Runyon.  Carl taught English at OCTC for 35 years and was one of the founders of our 5K.
