This event is hosted by the undergraduate student organization Buckeyes Raising Awareness in Neuroscience (BRAIN). All proceeds directly benefit brain injury survivors, including through our NeuroNights program, a joint initiative between The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, The Ohio State University Chronic Brain Injury program, and BRAIN to provide comprehensive communal and wellness support for brain injury survivors. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns!
Last year's race proceeds benefitted the following:
All participants that sign up by March 1st, 2023 are guaranteed a race t-shirt, and all others will be offered on a first-come first-served basis for those who sign up after March 1. All participants will also receive a special finisher prize! Participants are encouraged to wear blue (the color for brain injury awareness) or green (the color for traumatic brain injury awareness)! We also encourage you to share your participation using the hashtag #BIA5K2023 on social media.

When it comes to parking on the Ohio State campus, you've got options. There are two different general types of parking: garages and surface parking lots. CampusParc manages parking at Ohio State, and we are directing our participants to use SureParc, an interactive map that allows you to view parking rules by date and time. After filling out the menu in SureParc, you can click on parking areas within the map to learn more about rates, occupancy, and you can even click to get directions to a particular spot. The tool provides personalized information for permit holders, patients and visitors.
Our recommendation is parking on surface lots around the Ohio Stadium, as they are in closest proximity to our event plaza. ADA parking is closest to our event at surface lots off of the intersection of Annie and John Glenn Avenue and Neil Avenue. See image below for more information:
After the run – custom race medals will be awarded to the top male and female overall finishers in each age group. Age Groups: 18 and under, 19-29, 30-45, and 45+. We will also be raffling off 5 BRAIN Crewnecks for participants that fundraise ANY amount in addition to their registration fee!
