Description

Join Columbus Eastside Running Club (CERC) as we get the summer training season started with a FREE prediction run at Second Sole! 


What is a prediction run?
This is not a race. This is a test of self-knowledge. Anyone can win! When you sign up you will provide your best guess as to how long it will take you to compete the course (approximately 3.56 miles). You can run fast, you can run slow. Your only goal is to get as close as possible to that prediction.

Maybe this doesn't seem that hard without the kicker: NO phones or watches. Leave 'em in your car (or with the race staff - we will have envelopes to label and put them in). No timing devices of any sort, except chip timing provided by North Country Running Company. That's right, we will tell you with scientific accuracy how dependent you are on your watch.

The prediction run is limited to 200 participants! Sign up now to avoid regrets!

The OFFICIAL RULES:

  1. No watches, phones or timekeeping devices
  2. No GPS devices (you're gonna have to put this one in Strava manually)
  3. Have fun, enjoy running
  4. Ties will be broken by the ultimate competition of wits: rock-paper-scissors, best two out of three, go on shoot.

Need more convincing?  There's more!
We know leaving your watch behind makes some of you shake in your running shoes, so we have some added incentive!  CERC has the best partners in town, and they will be on hand to chat and answer any of your burning questions!  You'll have a chance to talk to trainers from 614Fitness (home of 614Worx, a strength program designed specifically for runners), physical therapists from THE Ohio State University, and our very own CERC coaches. And as if being surrounded by experts who love running is not enough, here are a few more things to expect:

  • Awards (top prize to the overall winner and some fun stuff too)
  • Door prizes (you just have to show up!)
  • Special discounts provided by Second Sole (we love shopping for running stuff)
  • A FREE prediction run (did we mention that already?)
  • Pals
  • Good times

It's only fun if you show up!
You don't even have to charge your watch the night before!  Just imagine all the time you will save!
