5k Race – In-person (7/4) and Virtual (7/4-7/10)

1) We will be holding an in-person race on Sunday, July 4, starting at 8:30 am at Selby Park, and sending the runners off in a series of wave starts to help keep everyone socially distant, as you run through beautiful tree-lined streets of Colonial Hills in Worthington, Ohio.
These staggered small groups will be based on your anticipated pace per mile; the event time is done with chip timing and the race results will reflect the actual chip start and finishing time.

We are holding the race on Sunday to allow all the runners/walkers to complete the entire race without interrupting the Kiddie Parade, which will be held on Saturday, July 3.

Make sure you sign up soon, and by no later than midnight July 2, on our race website: https://runsignup.com/Race/OH/Worthington/RunthroughtheHills, because we will not be doing race day registration, and we are capping the in-person race at 150 people this year.

Awards will be presented immediately after the race, as follows:

  • To the top overall male and female finishers and the top Junior (age 19 and under) finishers.
  • And age group awards, female and male, will be given to the top three finishers in these age groups:
  • 12 and under
    and 60 and over.

2) You can also sign up on our race website for our Virtual Run, which can be completed any time between July 4 and July 10. Just like last year, you can run, jog or walk any 5k route you want, and don’t have to submit your time unless you want to. However, no awards will be given for the virtual race.

The cost for everyone, for both the in-person and virtual races, is $25.00, plus a nominal processing fee. Also, PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ENTER AN ACCURATE EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN REGISTERING, so that we can contact you for any follow-up information.

Please see the race website for further details, including early pick up for your race bib with its embedded chip for timing — and register now, before you forget! And you can click here for the Race’s current status.
