Run The Year 2017

Got in an email:
Run The Edge is putting on the Run The Year 2,017 miles  in 2017 running/walking challenge starting January 1st. Owners, Adam Goucher, and Tim Catalano, have years of experience in the running industry, and are excited to launch the third year of the challenge.  The challenge asks runners/walkers, cross-trainers, and regular everyday exercisers to run or walk 2,017 miles in the year 2017. It sounds difficult, and it is, but when you make a goal, stick with a community, have a supportive (maybe competitive!) team behind you, and believe in your goals, amazing things can happen. The miles can be completed anywhere, at anytime, and the challenge can be completed individually or on a team of up to 4 people. This is a great way to keep your running group engaged and active all year long! Registration comes with optional entry to 12 monthly fitness challenges hosted by Kara Goucher and access to mileage trackers.
I wanted to reach out to offer you a $5 code for your and your community. Please feel free to share the code "RTYSCLUBS" with family, friends, runners, walkers, anyone in your community. I've attached a few flyers below with information if you'd like to post to social media or email to your crew! Check out the Run The Year challenge and get inspired to join us for 2,017 miles!

2016 Turkey Burner Mile Recap

About 35 runners decided to burn a few  extra calories and figure out how fast that they could run a mile this past Sunday afternoon November 27, 2016  at the  RCGC Turkey Burner Mile Run at Summit Park in Blue Ash OH(View photos).  Conditions for the race were sunny but windy.  The wind would effect the runners on the out and back relatively flat mile course on the former taxi runway of Blue Ash Airport..
Top finisher was Ben Bayless with a time of 4:47 followed by Seth Streitmatter who ran a 4:49 and Cy Young who ran a 5:18. Top female was the ageless wonder Peggy Doerger who ran a 6:09. She was followed by Cindy Moore who ran a 6:57 and Charlotte Gould who ran a 7:10.   (View results).
 Thank you to our volunteers Lowell Clark, Tom Glasscock, Todd Hofacre and  Stacy Osborne.  Without their help, the race could not have happened.  A special thank to the City of Blue Ash for allowing us to use Summit Park and the taxi runway for the race.  See you in 2017. If you won an award but had to leave early, you can pick up your awards at the Foot Doctor located at 5521 Montgomery Road, Norwood OH. VIEW RESULTS.
