Ten long-time members of the Greater Cincinnati running community will be inducted into the inaugural class of the Greater Cincinnati Running Hall of Fame during ceremonies on Sunday, August 7 at the Original Montgomery Inn Restaurant, Montgomery, starting at 4:30 p.m.
Inductees include Olympian John Anderson; distance runner Ted Corbitt; marathoner Karen Cosgrove; Olympian and track coach D’Andre Hill; Olympian Dehart Hubbard; All-America runner Connie Jo Robinson; Running Spot store founder Bob Roncker; coach Bill Schnier; six-time Thanksgiving Day winner John Sence and NCAA hurdles champion Glenn Terry.
In addition, Don Wahle will receive the first Lifetime Achievement Award for his 60 years in the local running community.
Guest speaker for the event will be three-time Olympian Jim Ryun, who broke the world record for the mile at age 19 and held the world record in five events. He broke the 4:00 mile as a high school junior in Kansas and won three state mile run titles, a national record that still stands.
To be eligible for the Greater Cincinnati Running Hall of Fame, athletes must be retired from professional competition and are evaluated on high school, collegiate and post-collegiate athletic achievements, as well as non-competitive contributions in the community.
