Description

Join us for the 4th annual Run for Blue Blazes - Buckeye Trail Run. Again this year there will be four options for a distance right for you: marathon, half marathon, 10K and 5K, all on the Buckeye Trail in the Wayne National Forest.  The 2018 course is new, designed as an out and back course to include a new section of the Buckeye Trail (BT). Most of the course follows the BT "Blue Blazes" on single track trail, with some challenging and hilly conditions.  The half and full marathon have over 1056 feet of elevation change.  The start and finish of this event is in downtown Shawnee, Ohio, near the Buckeye Trail Association office, 127B W. Main Street,

There will be wave starts with the Marathon starting at 8:30AM, followed by the Half Marathon and then the 10K & 5K races.  All distances will be chip timed, with timing points on the half and full marathon course (at the half and full turnaround points).

After the race participants can enjoy food prepared by the BTA Chuckwagon cooks.  This is the same chuckwagon used by the BTA Trail Maintenance volunteers who work year-round building and maintaining the Buckeye Trail (over 1,440 miles) in the state of Ohio.

Awards will be given to the top overall male and female finishers and age group top finishers.  Age groups: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and over.
