Gatorade has announced its support of the Little Miami Half Marathon and 10K, which will be celebrating its seventh year in Morrow, Ohio on Sunday, August 14, 2016. The 13.1 mile half marathon will kick off at 7:00 a.m. with the 10K to follow at 7:30 a.m. When the heat of summer sets in, runners and walkers need to stay hydrated while they race. Race participants will be able to replenish their electrolytes at every aid station and at the finish line with Gatorade Endurance Formula.
The Little Miami Half Marathon and 10K is a flat and fast scenic race run along the banks of the Little Miami River. The entire course is run on a shaded bike path, which is a big bonus during Ohio’s humid summer months. The race starts and finishes in Morrow, OH, just a few miles east of King’s Island, and travels through South Lebanon and Kings Mills. Runners receive a technical running shirt in both men’s and women’s sizing, finishers medals for all runners, chip timing and great post race food at the finish. Registration is now open at www.ohiorunning.com.
The event benefits Friends of the Little Miami State Park and Ohio State Parks. The Friends is a nonprofit organization devoted to the preservation and enhancement of the Little Miami State Park. They assist park management with development planning, routine maintenance, capital improvements, safety concerns, parking issues and promotions.
A pre-race packet pickup will be held at Buckeye Running Company in Mason.
