COVID-19 is changing our lives. We had hoped to have our Lost Boys' Fun Run but after many considerations we have decided to CANCEL our race in Ohio. However, our walk will still go on in South Sudan. We want to encourage people to still sponsor a child in South Sudan by clicking on the DONATE button at the top. Last year 200 children walked in South Sudan because of sponsors that donated on this site. The children were thrilled to be able to have ownership in supporting their clinic. The children will still do their walk in a safe manner and are looking for those who will sponsor them. Just click on the donate button at the top to sponsor a child.

Check out the Buckeye Clinic at and If you would like to make a donation with a check you can send it to: The Buckeye Clinic, P. O. Box 21794, Columbus, OH 43221-0794. Thank you for your support.

Race Day Timeline

  • 9:00 AM - Race day pickup and registration will begin, and events begin shortly after. If you plan on running/racing the 5K, we recommend (but don't require) starting now to run with others and avoid the heat of the day. Remember, this is a "choose your own start time" event so you can start anytime between 9-10:30 AM
  • 11:30 AM - Last possible starting time for any event. 


All distances are accurately measured and you can be confident that your distance is correct. These events are untimed and there are no placement awards. We encourage all to run or walk their own race!
