Why Mid-Ohio for a location?
One of the biggest obstacles for mid-sized and longer events is traffic control, cooperation from local communities, and runner safety. Major events in large cities have more roads for alternative routes to divert traffic. In addition, mega events have the selling point of tremendous economic impact on the local community-i.e.350 million dollars to New York City from the 2011 New York City Marathon. The move to Mid-Ohio and their 330 acres is an attempt to find an alternative solution to runner safety and traffic issues.
Pre-race packet pickup will be Saturday evening, November 17, at the Deer Ridge Golf Course in Bellville-at the US 71 interchange from 6-9pm. Cost for the Spaghetti and meatballs dinner with house salad and garlic bread (including coffee, iced tea and water) is $8.50 per person. Packets may also be picked up race morning beginning at 10:45am. The main gates will not open until 10:30am!
