Race Ideas Wanted
Aaron Barrows from Blue Entertainment Sports Television in Lexington KY is looking for some race information in the Greater Cincinnati area specifically about road racing in Cincinnati. He is looking for help in what Cincinnati may not have in terms of races that you think the city should have. It could be anything including the basic 5k, 10k, half-marathon, marathon, duathlon, triathlon or some unique race found in other parts of the country that should and could be here. He would like all ideas as they are looking to try an annual event possibly attached to a festival or block party. If you have an idea for a race, you can contact Aaron at
