We are very proud to present this race series opportunity to the running community of SE Ohio and NW West Virginia. We hope that you will join us for all of these races as well as other local races that River City Runners may support!

Winning a race will earn 500 points while each subsequent place will earn a percent of the winning points based on time. All finishers are guaranteed 100 points. 

This series has been established by the River City Runners for three reasons. First, we wish to encourage the local community to lead a healthy lifestyle, which includes a regular exercise routine. By providing opportunities to come together and compete, we hope that you the community will draw encouragement. Secondly, we want to provide an incentive for you to donate to local charities which host road races. Lastly, this race series, as well as the individual races, will provide a means to fundraise for the Columbus to Cincinnati (C2C) Run which benefits the American Cancer Society. The River City Runners believe that the ACS is doing great work in easing the burden on patients who are struck with this terrible disease, and we need your help to make the C2C Run a success! Since 2015, River City Runners raised over $43,000 for the ACS.

Registering for any of the races in the series automatically enters you in the series. Anyone under the age of 21, however, is ineligible and will not be included. College level athletes are responsible for contacting the River City Runners to have themselves removed from consideration as participation would jeopardize their eligibility.

Cash prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in both the male and female category.

Anyone who enters all of the series races will earn a medal and a t-shirt with the River City Race Series logo.
