Why run the Historic Germantown 8K?

Set in quaint and historic Germantown, this is truly Ohio's most beautiful race. Overflowing with rich history at every turn, scenic countryside lined by gently flowing streams, and one of the world's most unique covered bridges. As you make your way through town to the finish you will be greeted by live music, great food, a custom finisher medal, and for those quick enough, handmade in the USA wooden awards. This is truly an event for the entire family and all of your friends!

Countdown to race day!
