[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Do you love pancakes? Of course you do! Do you know who runs Dayton? No … maybe? Well you’re in the right place to find out who runs Dayton and how you can too on October 12, 2014!
The Dayton River Corridor Classic (DRCC), the longest running half marathon in Dayton, is entering its 38th year of taking runners around Great Miami River and natural trails in Dayton. You can choose between the half marathon and the 5K which makes this a great race for all runners, no matter the experience; this race is walker, wheelchair, and family friendly and a ton of fun! Now, I know you’re wondering about pancakes and what they have to do with this, but first let’s talk about something new and special happening this year.
Awareness and support are very important to local charities which is why the Dayton River Corridor Classic has partnered with seven Dayton charities for the Run Dayton 2014 – Charity Contest. It’s a simple voting contest that includes two rounds – Round 1 ended September 30th and three charities advance to Round 2 ending October 11th – asking people to share their favorite charity on Facebook and Twitter then submitting a vote. A total of $5000 will be divided as follows: $2,500 for the winner, $1,500 second place, and $1,000 for third.
The three charities that have advanced to Round 2 are Hannah’s Treasure Chest, The Hope Foundation of Greater Dayton, and Safe Harbor House. You can’t always donate time and/or money, so this is a no-cost way for you to support and help make Dayton a better place to live and play with just a few clicks!
Oh yeah, about those pancakes … there will a whole lot of them at the race and they’re FREE … along with coffee, juice, and toppings, but only if you run Dayton ($5 for non-runners).
The Dayton River Corridor Classic is intimate, fun, and competitively friendly making it a staple in Dayton, Ohio. Online registrations end tonight at 8pm, so get on the list now or get signed up at the Expo on Saturday or 7:30 on Sunday morning prior to the race. Otherwise, vote here, and we’ll see you and the family October 12th having fun running, exploring, and supporting Dayton![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
