Now that the Challenge season is past and you are looking for some inspiration to keep yourself running may we suggest the following races:

Cooper Turkey Trot 5K - November 7th in St. Henry, Ohio - This has become a great annual 5K with the proceeds benefiting State of the Heart Hospice.  The folks at Coopers know how to take care of the runners afterwards with a great lunch including turkey sandwiches.

K of C 5K for Vocations - November 14th at St. Charles Center, Carthagena, Ohio - This 5K is held on the scenic grounds and surrounding roads of St. Charles Center (formerly St. Charles Seminary). Awards and door prizes will include pumpkin pies to the top finisher in each age groups as well as other random pies given away.  Proceeds from the event will be used to support Catholic vocations.  Individuals of all faith and denominations are welcome and encouraged to participate.

Entry forms for both races are post on the ENTRY FORM tab at the top of this page.
