On My Own Two Feet Marathon and Half Marathon
April 19th, 2014
When: Marathon and Half Marathon start at 9 AM and course closes at 3 PM
Where: Starts and finishes at Beckwith’s Orchard, 1617 Lake Rockwell Rd in Kent, Ohio.
Packet Pick-up will be at Kent Cycle this year at 115 Lake St! You can sign up there. There is no race day sign up. Kent Cycle is our newest sponsor and a great local business. You can pick everything up Friday (18th) from 10AM-7PM.
On my On Two Feet has partnered up with Bob Evans to raise money for Cleveland’s Domestic Violence and Child Advocacy Center. On February 28th and March 1st 15% of SALES (totaling almost $1700) was donated. Thank you to all that participated!
Course:Both races start next to Beckwith Orchards on the Portage Bike and Hike. There are stocked aid stations every .75-1.5 miles and potties at start, .75, 3, 3.75, 4.5, and 8.5. The majority of the race is on Portage Bike and Hike, which is half paved, half dirt/limestone. The half has about 3 miles on dirt trails, the full about 6. This means there will be roots, rocks and other creative ways to hurt yourself! However, you will see the most beautiful parts of Kent. Trains wiz by as you run along the river, next to lakes and through the trees that Kent is known for. Slow down and enjoy the scenery! (More details on “course map” tab at top of page.)
Prizes: First, second and third overall for both races will receive prizes. 1st place age groups will receive bobble head trophies.
