Ohio C2C Challenge
The Ohio C2C Virtual Challenge is a virtual event that you can run, walk or bike. It’s your choice. You don’t have to do both stages, do one stage and be done or do two stages and have an extra notch in your belt. The challenge follows (virtually) the Ohio to Erie Trail that starts in Cincinnati on the Ohio River and ends in Cleveland on Lake Erie.
Participants in this virtual event will be able to log their miles attained and track themselves along the route. A daily leaderboard will be posted to gauge where you stand against others in the event. You can start at anytime and finish when you want. You can do your miles anywhere you choose; in a park, in your neighborhood or on your treadmill.
Stage 1 (turtle stage) starts in Cincinnati on June 1* and ends in Columbus whenever you are finished. Total distance 115 miles
Stage 2 (cardinal stage) starts in Columbus on June 1* and ends in Cleveland whenever you are finished. Total distance 200 miles
*Even though the event starts on June 1, you can register and start when you want.
Run, Walk or Bike
You can run it, walk it or bike it wherever you want and as you make progress along the course you can track yourself to see how far you have gone until you reach your goal.
T-Shirts will be made for stage 1 and 2, each with its own distinct design. Each stage will feature an indigenous animal from Ohio. Stage 1 will be the turtle which is found in the Ohio River and stage 2 will be the cardinal which is the official State bird. These will be mailed out shortly after the end of each stage.
A portion from each registration will be donated to the Ohio to Erie Trail committee for the use in maintaining and creating more trail. You may make an additional donation if you please during the registration process.
The Ohio C2C Virtual Challenge is going to be a very different event than you may have ever done and its going to be fun. Join us for this trek across Ohio.
